Champaign County Clerk Gordy Hulten collects and sorts the final voter registration forms for an election in the southeast corner of the Union.

By Samantha Boyle, Assistant Daytime News Editor

The Illinois primary election ended at 7 p.m. today. Gordy Hulten, county clerk, said more people voted early or by mail than four years ago.

Hulten said it is partly because many people voted early or by mail for the presidential election, since people rarely go back to voting at the poll stations on election day after trying the alternatives.

The primary elections usually have a lower voter turnout than the general election, Hulten said.

The results of this election are as follows:

Congressional Representative for District 13: Rodney Davis (R), Betsy Londrigan (D)

State Senator Representative for Senate District 51: Chapin Rose (R)

Champaign County Clerk: Matt Grandone (R), Aaron Ammons (D)

Champaign County Sheriff: Allen Jones (R)

Champaign County Executive: Darlene Kloeppel (D), Gordy Hulten (R)

Champaign County Treasurer: Laurel Lunt Prussing (D), John Farney (R)

Auditor: George Danos (D), Diane Michaels (R)

Governor: J.B. Pritzker (D), Bruce Rauner (R)

Attorney General: Erika Harold (R)
