Nine Illinois Counties vote overwhelmingly to support legalizing concealed handguns

The counties are mainly rural and the vote was non-binding, but it just confirms the serious support for concealed carry in the last state that still bans it.
Residents in nine mostly rural counties have sent a message to Illinois lawmakers: Legalize the right to carry concealed weapons. 
Measures supporting concealed carry passed overwhelmingly in all nine counties where they were on Tuesday's ballot — Adams, Bond, Henry, McDonough, Mercer, Rock Island, Schuyler, Stephenson and Warren. 
The votes were non-binding because local law cannot override state law. But advocates say they hope to build pressure on lawmakers to support concealed carry. . . .
If anyone knows the exact percentages of the votes, I would appreciate it.  I looked on line briefly, but I couldn't find anything.

Thanks to Tony Troglio for the link.
