Local winners on Tuesday (based on unofficial results): Charlie Meier in 108th House District, Blaine Wilhour in 107th House District, Jason Plummer in 54th District Senate, Vicky Albers for Clinton County Clerk.

    With contested races to select respective party nominees for governor, attorney general, congressman, two House seats, a Senate seat and locally for Clinton County Clerk, a little over 22 percent of the county’s 24,486 registered voters went to the polls in Tuesday’s General Primary Election.
    Unofficial totals from the Clinton County Courthouse show that 17.6 percent (4,328 people) voted a Republican ballot while 4.5 percent (1,121 people) voted Democratic.
    Clinton County voters favored Democrat JB Pritzker and incumbent Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner as nominees for governor. Statewide results show JB Pritzker as the Democratic front-runner in Illinois; however, as of presstime on Tuesday night (with 8,382 of 10,119 precincts reporting), the Republican race between Rauner and Jeanne Ives was still too close to call.  

    Other candidates coming out on top were incumbent state Rep. Charlie Meier of Okawville as the Republican nominee for his seat in the 108th District; Blaine Wilhour of Beecher City as the Republican nominee for the 107th District House seat currently held by retiring state Rep. John Cavaletto; Jason Plummer of Edwardsville as the Republican nominee for the Senate seat now held by retiring state Sen. Kyle McCarter; and Vicky Albers of Bartelso as the Republican nominee for Clinton County Clerk, a seat which will be vacated in November with the retirement of current County Clerk Mary Rakers.
    Here’s a quick rundown of the unofficial results in Clinton County from Tuesday’s election.

    Nicole Voss, 36, is currently in the St. Clair County Jail on $15,000 bond after police arrested her last Sunday after she allegedly drove her vehicle onto a curb on South Madison Street in Lebanon.
    Voss was charged in St. Clair County with Class 3 felony unlawful possession of methamphetamine and driving while having a revoked driver’s license.
    Her bond was initially set at $20,000, however, has been reduced to $15,000, in which 10 percent (or $1,500) would have to be posted for her to be released on bond.
    Last August, Voss’ son, 2-year-old Jensen Voss, died after he was found unconscious and not breathing after being struck by a vehicle in a private driveway near Fourth Street and Hayes Street in Keyesport. The driver of the vehicle was Jensen’s mother, Nicole Voss.
