Rockford Delays Early Voting for a Second Time
If you live in the rest of the state of Illinois, including Winnebago County, you can now vote in March 15th Primary Election, but not in the city of Rockford.
WREX-TV is reporting that early voting for March Primary has been delayed until February 15 for voters registered in the City of Rockford..
Judge Lisa Fabiano issued a court order for the delay because of a ballot issue. City ballots in Rockford contain no provision for a write in candidate.
Rockford attorney John Nelson has filed as a write-in candidate for the Democrat primary for Winnebago County Board Chairman.
In the event a candidate meets the proper criteria files a notarized declaration of intent to be write-in candidates with the proper election authority a space must be provided on the ballot for the office he or she seeks.
This is now the second delay for early voting for the March 15th primary.
