On a cold and rainy Election Day, candidates for the 46th House District, Deb Conroy and Daniel Kordik, spent time in their district and were focused on keeping busy until the vote results began to file in.
Conroy, a Democratic candidate from Elmhurst, began her day at a polling location in Glen Ellyn. She moved north to Glendale Heights where she planned on finishing her day.
At 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Conroy said that the day had gone well so far, despite the rainy and nippy conditions. She was busy greeting voters at the polling locations and said that after voting ends at 7 p.m., she planned on heading back to the election headquarters on St. Charles Road in Villa Park to watch the day’s results trickle in.
“It’s all in the voters’ hands,” said Kordik, a Republican candidate from Villa Park.
He said he began his day close to his normal routine. He said hello to his kids this morning and attended 8:30 a.m. Mass at St. Alexander’s Church in Villa Park before heading into his law office.
Although he was working, it wasn’t an entirely typical day, he said. He kept busy fielding calls and catching up on some work.
In the evening, Kordik said he planned to visit the Addison, Bloomingdale and York township Republican election night headquarters for the opportunity to thank all of his friends and supporters.
The final stop of the night would probably be the Elmhurst Elk Lodge, he said, which is where the York Township Republican organization would be located.
Because of redistricting, neither Conroy nor Kordik has served the 46th District before. The incumbent, state Rep. Dennis Reboletti, was drawn into House District 45. In last spring’s election, Conroy ran uncontested for the Democratic seat while Kordik beat an Addison man to run in the Republican seat.
