Early and mail voting for upcoming general election in Illinois to be delayed
The start of early voting for Illinois’ upcoming general election will be delayed.
Jackson County Clerk Larry Reinhardt says early and mail voting in the state is being delayed because objections have been filed against several candidates running for President.
The State Board of Elections has to complete the objection process to determine who will be on the ballot.
Once that is done, ballots can be printed and sent out.
Reinhardt says he hopes to have the ballots go out on or before February 17th, which is the first day of grace period voting.
Illinois’ general election is set for March 15.
