The three winners will face a trio of Republican opponents in the general election.

During the campaign, 24-year-old Nowak of Bartlett suggested that board members be paid an hourly wage to ensure that county board members are spending enough hours on county-related business to justify their annual salary. None of the Democrats in the District 6 primary race said the $50,000-a-year pay for county board members should be reduced.

District 6 includes all or parts of Aurora, Bartlett, Bloomingdale, Carol Stream, Glendale Heights, Hanover Park, Naperville, Roselle, St. Charles, Warrenville, Wayne, West Chicago, Wheaton and Winfield.
