Election Commission Statement
On the evening of March 20, 2018, during the General Primary
Election, the DuPage County Election Commission experienced an issue following
the close of polls that delayed the reporting of Election results. This issue, which involved an outside
Vendor’s printing of an "Ender Card" Form which did not conform with
the printing Bid Specifications, did not affect any voter's ability to cast a
ballot at the polls, nor did it affect the count of ballots processed at the
polling place, the memory cards, or the integrity of the process.
Following a pre-election process involving this form
established in 2001, the Election Commission had not experienced an Ender Card
issue in the nearly two decades of its use.
We apologize to the voters, Judges of Election, and elected
officials, for any inconvenience the delay may have caused. Such a delay is
unacceptable and the Election Commission will take every measure necessary to
ensure the issue encountered is resolved.
We also wish to thank the Judges of Election at the polling
place and both the Republican and Democratic Party representatives assisting at
the Commission for their dedication ensuring the integrity of the process
We deeply regret the delay and will take the necessary steps
to correct the situation.
