Yingling earns another term representing 62nd House District
Incumbent Democratic state Rep. Sam Yingling held off Republican challenger Ken Idstein and will represent the 62nd Illinois House district for another term, according to unofficial results Tuesday.
With all 63 precincts reporting, Yingling had 11,528 votes, about 55.7 percent of the total. Idstein had 9,143 votes, about 44.3 percent.
Early votes, vote by mail and provisional ballots have not been included in the count yet.
All totals are considered unofficial until the votes are canvassed at a later date.
Yingling has represented the district since 2013.
On the campaign trail, Idstein, a mortgage broker from Grayslake, supported lowering and capping property taxes and the flat-rate income tax. District 62 includes Grayslake as well as portions of the Round Lake area, Gurnee and Wauconda.
