The general election is just days away, and the reporters and editors at the Kane County Chronicle are ready to tackle the stories that will unfold on election night.
After the polls close at 7 p.m. Tuesday, we will begin posting updated vote totals on our Election Central website, www.kcchronicle.com/election.
In addition to providing updates on vote totals, we will host a live chat about the election via Twitter. You can join the chat on election night at #kccec. (The Chronicle can be followed anytime through Twitter @kcchronicle.)
Those who are still boning up on the local, state and federal races are encouraged to visit our Election Central website. The site lists candidate bios, their answers to our election questionnaires and news stories.
The contested races we are covering include Kane County Board chairman, county coroner, circuit clerk and recorder. We also are covering the races for Kane County Board Districts 2, 5, 11, 14, 16 and 18.
In addition, we are covering the 25th State Senate District race, the 50th State Representative race and the congressional races for Districts 6, 11 and 14.

A big thanks to Batavia High School senior Katelyn Mudd, who completed an internship with the Kane County Chronicle earlier this month.
During her time at the Chronicle, Katelyn wrote a column, designed pages and wrote briefs for the newspaper.
“My fall internship at the Kane County Chronicle was a great experience for me,” Katelyn wrote at the conclusion of her internship. “Since about sixth grade, I have been wanting to go to college for journalism but didn’t know much about what journalism actually consisted of. The Chronicle helped me open my eyes to how a newspaper is run and every little detail that goes into making a successful paper.”
We appreciate the help Katelyn offered during the past few months. We’re glad she had a positive experience in our newsroom.
