November 6, 2018 - General Election

After the polls close at 7 PM and all voters in line have been served, Lake County’s election judges will transmit ballot tallies directly from the 121 Election Day voting sites to the County Clerk’s office. These totals are the first county results to be seen online at the clerk’s website.

Immediately following the complete reporting of all Lake County’s Election Day totals, tallies for the early and mailed ballots will be added to the website on election night. By statute, these ballots can only be counted in the clerk’s office after Election Day polls close.

Totals for write-in candidates will be added by end of day Friday, November 9.

Per Illinois election law, election results are not final until 14 days after Election Day. There are votes to count from verified provisional ballots and mailed ballots with a postmark no later than Election Day sent by county residents, military members, or overseas citizens.
