Republican David Olsen, who this summer was appointed to the state’s 81st House District seat, won his own term Tuesday.

Olsen defeated Democratic challenger Greg Hose by tallying 27,818 votes — or 54 percent — to Hose’s 24,145 votes — or 46 percent — according to unofficial results with all 108 precincts in DuPage and Will counties reporting.
Olsen, 28, of Downers Grove, was appointed July 30 to the seat representing all or parts of Downers Grove, Darien, Lisle, Bolingbrook, Naperville, Westmont and Woodridge after the resignation of former state Rep. Ron Sandack.
