DuPage voters say no to dual officeholders

Updated 11/7/2012 12:04 AM

One at a time, please.

That's the message DuPage County voters sent to public officials looking to hold two elected offices.

With all 748 precincts reporting, a whopping 90 percent of voters Tuesday answered "no" to a nonbinding proposal asking if public officials should be able to hold more than one office simultaneously.

The advisory question was placed on the ballot after Burr Ridge Mayor Gary Grasso announced his intention to seek a District 3 seat on the county board. Grasso has said the referendum would have no impact on his decision to pursue a second office.

County Board Chairman Dan Cronin said he wanted voters to weigh in on the issue.
