The day after midterm elections Tuesday, McHenry County Clerk Mary McClellan released the final unofficial vote totals for County Board races.
The board saw a “blue wave” unfold Tuesday when three Democrats took victories at the polls, according to unofficial results.
Here’s a look at updated vote totals for races that did not show 100 percent of precincts reporting at press time Tuesday night:
Incumbent Republican Robert Nowak collected 38.4 percent of ballots (9,393 votes). Christopher Spoerl took only 28.4 percent (6,960 votes), losing his seat to Democrat Michael Vijuk, who captured 33 percent of ballots (8,129 votes).
Republican Carolyn Schofield collected the most votes (7,132 votes) to take a seat with Democrat Suzanne Ness, who took 6,758 votes.
Republican newcomer Josh Howell fell short with 28 percent of ballots (5,445 votes).
Voters got a chance to impose term limits on County Board members and the board chairman through two separate referendums.
Both passed in overwhelming fashion with more than 91 percent of ballots voting “yes.”
