M06, Dem Committeeman results

State Representative Karen Yarbrough defeated incumbent Recorder of Deeds Eugene "Gene" Moore in the race for Proviso Democratic Committeeman, 9813-7090 or 58.1%-41.9%.

I received a detailed spreadsheet. What stands out?

Maywood (19%), Bellwood (14.7%) and Westchester (13.4%) are the big three for registered voters.

Township wide the turnout was 27.1%. The outliers were Brookfield (46.3%), North Riverside (40.2%), Broadview (35.3%) and La Grange Park (34%) on the high end. Stone Park (13.4%) and Northlake (17.4%) were on the low end.

Maywood (21.7%) and Bellwood (17.6%) are the big two for casting Dem ballots. Broadview (9.2%), Forest Park (9%), La Grange Park (8.5%), Melrose Park (8.9%) and Westchester (8.1%) are the next five.

Brookfield (77.5%), La Grange Park (70.6%) and Western Springs (76%) had the lowest percent of Dems vote in the committeeman race. Voters skipping a line on the ballot is called "undervote". Overall 89.1% voters that took a Dem ballot expressed a preference in the committeeman race. Ten point nine percent undervoted the race.

Yarbrought's best and worst villages were:
Forest Park......78.4%
La Grange Park...69.8%
N. Riverside.....67.7%

And the worst
Western Springs..47.4%
Melrose Park.....36.5%
Stone Park.......31.4%

And the big vote margins

Forest Park +879 Yarbrough
Bellwood +556 Yarbrough
La Grange Park +452 Yarbrough
Brookfield +411 Yarbrough
Melrose Park +408 Moore
Westchester +400 Yarbrough
Broadview +246 Yarbrough

  • What a slaughter by Yarbrough on Moore and Welch! If you look at precicints 126(Welch's) and 56(Moore's), Karen creamed them!
    What is funny is that Karen destroyed Moore, but even more crushed Welch! I guess Welch brought Moore down!

  • Hey Carl, who was running Moore's campaign?
    Did he have a campaign manager?
    What did his manger do?From the numbers it appears nothing!

  • Moore presently lives in Precinct One, not 56, and he lost it by two to one. However he only lost Maywood by 48 votes so he did not lose because of Maywood. But, and this is key, just as you look at othr towns, what did they do four years ago? While my gal, Karen only narrowly carried Maywood, four years ago Gene Moore carried Maywood by about 800 votes!! So the change there was very significant even if his lifelong residency in Maywood played some role in his narrow lost here.
