Online Election Results

After the polls close on Tuesday, March 17, and all voters in line by 7 PM have been served, Election Day voting site totals are the first results to be seen online at the Lake County Clerk’s website.

<br>Immediately following the complete transmission of all Election Day totals, early and vote by mail ballot totals will be added to the website on election night.

<br>Per Illinois election law, election results are not final until 14 days after Election Day. There are votes to be counted yet from verified provisional ballots and still-arriving mailed ballots postmarked no later than Election Day sent by county residents, military members, or overseas citizens. 

<br>Lake County uses the optical scan tabulating system which is considered by many election authorities to be the most secure voting system against cyber interference. Because the voter’s original paper ballot is collected and secured on election night, election results can be replicated if necessary.
