Cookie Election

County Clerk Randy Reitz

As previously reported on WGEL, Bond County Clerk Randy Reitz visited third grade classes in the Bond County Unit 2 School District last month to teach them about the election process. In doing so, he provided an example election, allowing the students to vote between their favorite cookie; Oreo or chocolate chip. Chocolate chip walked away with the third grade vote.

The process was so fun, Reitz decided to allow all county residents to participate in the cookie election at his office.

The ballots have been tabulated and Bond County went with Unit 2 third graders, voting chocolate chip the favorite over Oreo, 221 votes to 136.

Reitz also noted there were a few dozen write-in votes for favorite cookies as well.
