With just a few days until eventually Sangamon County’s consolidated general election, nearby voters will now have the option to capitalize on a new point out regulation. 

On Friday, Gov. JB Pritzker signed Property Invoice 1871, which expands vote-by-mail and curbside voting for all upcoming elections.

“Voting is the most fundamental right of our democracy and need to continue to be extensively readily available and available to anyone and the passage of HB 1871 presents far more possibilities for secure and secure voting,” Democratic Sen. Doris Turner, of Springfield, informed The Condition Journal-Sign-up on Saturday. “An too much to handle range of men and women in Sangamon County are having benefit of absentee voting, and I am pleased that the curbside packing containers utilized during the November election have remained an alternative. Fortuitously, now that option and other individuals will often be available not only in Sangamon County but in each and every county in Illinois.”
