The State Board of Elections announced Oct. 26 that the number of registered voters in Illinois is approaching 8,000,000, surpassing a previous record high of 7,789,500 set for the 2008 General Election.
Voters are reminded that there will be a Constitutional Amendment on the ballot. Information about the “lockbox amendment” or “safe roads amendment” is available on the Secretary of State’s website.
A number of local propositions and public questions could be found on the ballot as well, depending on the county and/or city/village. Contact the county clerk or local election authority to view a sample ballot.
