Thank you to all the voters who turned out and cast their votes for our Democratic Candidates. By the way, our organization is working to remove Democratic signage through Saturday in Plainfield Township. By Sunday, if you have signage remaining we might have missed and wish it removed please send me an email at plfdpct3@gmail.com or call me at 815/483-9110. By the way thank you to all the voters who supported our Democratic Candidates and to all the Plainfield Township voters as a whole who participated in the democratic process of choosing those who represent us in government. Mike Keniley Precinct Committeeman, Plainfield 14 and (A VERY PROUD) Chairman of the Plainfield Township Democratic Organization

So only 27,000 voted in Plainfield? Wow this is a very low number?

As a lifetime resident I was a bit surprised that Plainfield went for Obama. The precinct map though, shows the breakdown. http://www.willcogis.org/MapGalleries/Current/Precincts/Plainfield_ElecPrecincts_B.pdf
