How to vote in McLean County

For many years now, our office has partnered with NCWHS teacher John Bierbaum, in identifying educational opportunities for students. This year, we were thrilled to work with John again along with Technology teacher Robert Scornavacco and Business and Internship Program teacher Tim Franz. Their Internship Program is amazing.

NCWHS Intern Hope Knoerle worked with the Election Division of our office and did an outstanding job explaining our election process. Here is her video. We thank everyone involved including our wonderful election judges who assisted. Hope Knoerle. . . . that's a name I think we will all see in the years to come. What a talented young lady. Thanks Hope!
