Paper ballots in judge races apparently were unavailable Tuesday in Precinct 22 at Glenbrook School in Streamwood until after a complaint was filed by Frank Gronn. Gronn said he complained at the polling site and later to Hanover Township and through that office to the Cook County clerk's office. He said he tried to vote for judges about 8:30 a.m. and was unable to do so. He checked back later in the day and ballots were available, he said. Courtney Greve, a spokeswoman for the county clerk's office, called the incident unfortunate. She said she had no official record of the complaint and didn't know how many voters didn't get judicial ballots, but that it sounded like a case of error among workers at the polling place. Overall, there were a typical number of complaints Tuesday, most falling into the categories of electioneering too close to a polling place, equipment problems, and ballot questions, she said.
