Orr's office warns about "unofficial" sample ballot in Palatine:

Cook County Clerk David Orr's office Monday sent a warning to reporters about a Palatine Township Republican flyer that inappropriately uses his name, title and logo, and, he says,
"therefore may imply my endorsement of particular candidates."

"That it is not the case," Orr continues. "As the election authority, I make it a practice never to endorse local candidates. I wanted to clarify this situation for the voters before tomorrow's election."

The flyer is drawn up to look like a sample ballot, with arrows pointing towards the Republican candidates who were not slated by the township party.
