Calling All Political Junkies (And Latest Vote Counts)
City Bureau has come out with an interactive map where you can check, all the way down to the precinct level, how the voter turnout was, and how the votes went in both the April 2nd runoff and the February 26th general election.
Check it out here.
In the latest runoff results (released Thursday), there were an additional 203 votes added to the 46th Ward totals since the polls closed on Election Day. Latest results have it at Cappleman with 50.15% of the votes counted so far (6,802) and Lalonde with 49.85% (6,762). Still a nail-biter.
The Board of Elections is still waiting for more mail-in, provisional, and Cook County Jail votes, and will certify all election results on April 16th.
In the runoff, 31.87% of registered voters came out to the polls citywide. Uptown's three wards all exceeded the city average. Turnout in the 46th Ward was 39.36%; in the 47th, it was 46.30%; and in the 48th, it was 41.97%. Well done.
