A tally of absentee and provisional ballots Tuesday reversed the outcome of the Will County sheriff's race.
Before those ballots were counted, Sheriff's Detective Sgt. Mike Kelley trailed his opponent, Ken Kaupas, by 170 votes. After election judges sifted through more than 3,000 absentee and provisional ballots, Kelley had 471 more votes than Kaupas and declared victory.

Bridge work on Interstate 55 near Channahon — marred with seven fatalities and more than 100 accidents over the course of two construction seasons — will likely wrap up next week.
Illinois Department of Transportation crews could complete repairs as early as next week, but the reopening of lanes won't start until the week of Aug. 25, state Rep. Larry Walsh Jr., D-Elwood, said Tuesday.
Labor Day is still considered the target completion date, but IDOT officials are working to complete the work “as soon as possible” and reopen lanes prior to the holiday weekend, IDOT spokeswoman Paris Ervin said in an email.
