It’s more proof that every vote really does count.
One hotly-contested race in the Illinois General Assembly ended with Republican incumbent Helene Miller Walsh holding a one-vote lead over Democratic challenger Mary Edly-Allen. Walsh has been controversial since being appointed to the Illinois House earlier this year… with sometimes-controversial Facebook posts. Walsh finished with 25,106 votes to 25,105 for Edly-Allen.
The race could be decided by provisional and mail-in ballots that haven’t yet been counted.
