Republicans Will Be First on Nov. 6 Ballot in Kane County
- Editor’s Note: This article is part of a series on the Nov. 6 General Election ballot. Kane County Connects encourages citizens to take part in the election process and to seek multiple sources to inform their voting decisions.
Per state statute, the Kane County Clerk’s Office held a lottery Monday for party ballot placement for the Nov. 6, 2018, General Election.
As a result, Republican candidates will be listed first on the ballot, followed by Democrats and any independent or new party candidates.
This will be the first election in which Kane County Clerk’s Office takes over the function of the Aurora Election Commission and oversees voting in the Kane County portion of Aurora.
