Early Voting Delayed in Illinois
It looks like you will have to wait at least 1 more week before you can cast your ballots for me in the 3rd District, Lake County Board Republican Primary early voting period.
Early voting, which was supposed to start this Thursday, has been delayed due to a challenge to Democratic Attorney General Candidate Scott Drury. Drury was ordered off the ballot by a Cook County Judge regarding questions about his economic interest statement.
Lake County Clerk, Carla Wyckoff, has indicated the process will likely take a week. Drury has filed an appeal which needs to be decided. After the court’s decision, the State still must certify the ballots before voting can begin.
While the actual Primary Election is on March 20th, early voting was intended to start this Thursday, February 8th. This gives me another week to meet more voters as I walk the neighborhoods.
