It’s the first day for Early Voting in advance of the November 8th General Election. And activity is likely picking up at election offices.
Iroquois County Clerk Lisa Fancher said her office staff has been busy preparing for busy days ahead. Likewise in Ford, Kankakee and Livingston County. The Vermilion County Clerk’s Office and the Danville Board of Election Commission is also expecting busy times for the next few weeks.
Early Voting, introduced in 2006, allows registered voters to cast their ballots prior to Election Day. There’s no reason needed for voting early, but Kankakee County Clerk Bruce Clark reminds voters if you cast your ballot early, the votes cannot be changed....
Ballots cast early will be stored in an Optical Scan Ballot tabulator. The tabulators will be totaled on Election Day after the polls close.
Questions can be directed to your county clerk’s office.
