WAYS TO VOTE IN THE UPCOMING FEBRUARY ELECTION
With the Presidential Primary Election for Illinois, less than a month away, voter's can still register to cast their ballot in the election. According to Bond County Clerk Randy Reitz's office, residents have until Tuesday, January 8th, to register to vote. After that, voters who still aren't registered and want to vote, must cast a grace ballot, in person, by January 31st.
Another way to vote is by applying for an absentee ballot. Requests can be sent to the clerk's office and must be received by January 31st as well. An absentee ballot, is for those who will be out of town on election day, or incapacitated, and unable to make it to the polling center.
And the third way to vote, prior to the election, is by casting an early vote. Resident's can begin voting early in the middle of January and have until the end of the month to vote. When voting early, you don't need a reason, like the absentee voting. For more details on voting in the upcoming election, contact the Bond County Clerk's Office at 664-0449.
