Lake County Board Member Adam Didech stepped down from his position effective Feb. 10, 2020. Lake County Board Chair is seeking qualified candidates to fill the seat. 

According to State Statute (10 ILCS 5/25-11), the Lake County Board Chair shall appoint someone to fill the vacancy within 60 days with the advice and consent of the county board. The appointee would serve until the next general election, Nov. 3, 2020.

State law requires that Hart must appoint an individual who is:

  • At least 18 years old and a “legal voter” with a valid voter registration in Lake County. No individual may serve if their right to vote has been permanently revoked or temporarily revoked during the appointed term of office (10 ILCS 5/2-3015).
  • A resident of Lake County for at least one year preceding the next election (Nov. 3, 2020), and a current resident of District 20, which includes Buffalo Grove, portions of Long Grove and portions of the unincorporated areas of Vernon and Ela Townships.
  • Of the same political party as the seat’s predecessor, when he was elected. Accordingly, the chair is required to appoint a Democrat to this vacancy.
