There were also 5,275 mail-in ballots cast this election in the county.

The competitive elections in Will County included the one for Will County Clerk in which Lauren Staley-Ferry won the Democratic nomination over Denise Mushro-Rumchak.

In the Democratic race for Will County Board District 9, the top two vote earners were Rachel Ventura with 26.13 percent and Jim Murphy with 23.64 percent.
