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.

Tribune: Kelley for Will County Sheriff

Author: Editor
Sheriff: Incumbent Paul Kaupas is retiring, which creates the opportunity for a way-overdue overhaul of this troubled office. That's not likely to happen under Republican Ken Kaupas of Shorewood, the deputy chief of special operations and a second cousin of the incumbent. Democrat Mike Kelley of Lockport has the experience — he's a sergeant in the criminal investigations unit — and the strong ideas to accomplish significant improvements. Kelley would trim administrative expenses and revise the current process for sheriff's foreclosure sales, promising to save big money. He vows to attack the stunning rise in heroin use by young people in the suburbs by targeting dealers. Kelley is endorsed.
