Bucholz hangs on to DuPage recorder's seat
Incumbent Republican Fred Bucholz of Wheaton appears to have secured his fourth term as DuPage County recorder of deeds.
With 96 percent of precincts reporting Tuesday, unofficial results show Bucholz defeating Democratic challenger M. Moon, Khan, of Lombard, with 58 percent of the vote.
The hard-fought campaigned featured claims of nepotism by Khan, while Bucholz challenged Khan's plan to shutter the office and consolidate the recorder's duties with the county clerk.
Bucholz campaigned on a platform to continue his track record of implementing the latest technology to streamline the archiving of records to make them easier for residents to locate.
Khan joined the ballot in April after a court-ordered recount determined he had, in fact, secured the required amount of write-in votes to challenge Bucholz.
The recorder's office is the official land records repository for all real estate in the county. The recorder's primary responsibility is the accurate and timely maintenance of the indexing of documents in the chain of title to land in DuPage.
