In the 54th House District, incumbent Republican Tom Morrison of Palatine had a solid lead over Democrat Maggie Trevor of Rolling Meadows.

With 99% of precincts reporting, Morrison received 21,820 votes (57%) to Trevor's 16,344 (43%).

 

Those unofficial tallies also include early votes and many mail-in ballots. However, mail-in ballots requested by voters and postmarked by Tuesday will be counted if they arrive by Nov. 17.

Morrison, who has held the seat since 2011, has been critical of Gov. J.B. Pritzker's response to the COVID-19 crisis, calling the governor's orders "draconian." Trevor has said the "hardships" caused by restrictions on businesses are necessary due to the "life and death" importance of controlling the virus.

The 54th District includes parts of Palatine, Inverness, Rolling Meadows, Hoffman Estates, Arlington Heights, Barrington and Schaumburg.
