After a week of county late arriving vote by mail ballots, Eileen O’Neill Burke has been declared the winner in the race for Cook County State’s Attorney. She won with just a 1556 vote lead, which held since election night.

“It was worth the wait,” O’Neill Burke said in a campaign release. “I’d like to congratulate Clayton Harris on a hard-fought campaign. While we may have had our differences in this election, we share a love for our beautiful city and Cook County.”
