Although Moe Patel's name remains on today's election ballot, only write-in votes for the Democratic Schaumburg Township trustee candidate will count, Cook County election officials say.

Courtney Greve, a spokeswoman for the Cook County Clerk's Office, said Patel's name physically appears on the ballot but written notices were given to every township voter at the polls Tuesday indicating that votes for his name on the ballot won't be counted. His name has to be written in to be valid.

Late last month, Democrats believed their entire slate -- including Patel -- had been restored to the ballot by an Illinois Appellate Court ruling. But Patel was still dealing with one additional objection on the timeliness of his paperwork filing when the ballots were printed, Schaumburg Township Democratic Committeeman Mike Cudzik said.

Other Democrats on the ballot are township trustee candidates Mike Murray, Carolyn A. Quinn and Zuhair Nubani, as well as township highway commissioner candidate Michael Lenehan.

The Republican slate consists of Mary Wroblewski for supervisor; Timothy Heneghan for clerk; Robert Vinnedge, Jeffery Mytych, Diane Dunham and Nimish Jani for trustee; Scott Kegarise for highway commissioner; and John Lawson for assessor.

Other write-ins on the ballot include Democrats Rezwanul Haque for supervisor and Nafees Rehman for clerk.
