voter registration

A tight contest for the Presidential nomination and competitive races for seats in the General Assembly could make for a gripping primary in Illinois next month. Deadlines loom if you plan to be a part of it.

Several Democratic lawmakers want to make it simpler for more than 2 million Illinois residents to sign up to vote.


The League of Women Voters of McDonough County is trying to make it as easy as possible to register to vote in time for the November election. The effort ties into a national registration drive scheduled for Tuesday, September 25.

The LoWV will register voters September 20 at Eisenhower Towers in Macomb, September 25 at Macomb High School and Prairieview Homes, September 26 at the Western Illinois University Union, and September 27 at Bushnell-Prairie City High School.
