“There’s a growing push to change how Illinois handles early voting.
The first day of early voting for the March 20th primary was Feb. 8. That’s 40 days before the election.
Board of Election Commissioners for the City of Chicago spokesman Jim Allen told a crowd at an Illinois Campaign for Political Reform event on Thursday that Illinois’ early voting law is unworkable because it requires local election offices to be ready a month and ten days before the actual election day. ”
