DID YOU GET YOUR NEW VOTER CARD? Attention McLean County IL registered voters. Every two years each election jurisdiction is required by law to send out voter registration cards to all registered voters in their database. This is called "the Purge" used to clean up/update voter rolls. Because of the 10-year redistricting, this was required as well. Some voters will have been re-mapped in different districts Check your voter card. Here's an example. It will tell you each district you reside in and then you can follow who is running for election and who you will see on your ballot on the upcoming June 28 Primary. Your card also shows you where your Polling Place is. IF YOU DID NOT GET A NEW CARD, OR HAVE QUESTIONS, GIVE US A CALL AT 309.888.4035. The County Clerk's office does not handle City of Bloomington voters. Bloomington residents please contact the Bloomington Election Commission at becvote.org.

County Board District 10 member and candidate for re-election Chuck Erickson attended the Lottery drawing today for "first on the ballot" position. There were four lottery drawings, where we literally draw names out of a hat to see who will be first on the ballot on the June 28 Primary ballots. Here are the ballot positions for the four County Board District candidates who qualified to be in the Lottery drawing.
Candidates had to be in line to file on the first day to file, on or before 8:00 am to qualify for the Lottery drawing for ballot position. Thank you Election Program Manager and our Cybersecurity Specialist Bradley Beyer for organizing this detailed process.
L-R: Chuck Erickson, Deputy Clerk Deborah Hutchins and ISU Intern majoring in Political Science, Jackson Thiel.
