Cook, Illinois primaries: Latest results

voting.jpg

As far as the voting went, Tuesday's balloting was one of the lowest gubernatorial primary election turnouts in decades... ending, in fact, in some of the closest election results in Illinois history.

A recount in the Democratic race for governor seems to be a sure thing, the result of which could make Pat Quinn a lame-duck governor for the rest of the year.

What a mess that would be. It's a pity that three-fourths of the state's registered voters chose to sit out this very important election. (Despite the snow, you'd think with all the candidates on the ballot, just their relatives alone might have given us a higher tally.) If you didn't vote, y'know, "Lloyd's Law" says you are not allowed to complain when your taxes go up, your streets don't get paved, and the class size at your kid's school jumps to 40 -- that's assuming the teachers don't go on strike and your kid has a school to go to at all!

At any rate, the voters have spoken, please click on the race that you want to see the latest results:
