No Election in Illinois This November
Logan County Clerk Sally J. Turner wants voters to know there is no election in November of this year. Turner said her office has received a few calls from voters wanting to know when Election was to be held in November, where they vote, and who's on the ballot.
Many standard calendars list Tuesday, November 7 as Election Day, but that's not the case in Illinois. Our next election will be the General Primary on March 20, 2018, in which voters will nominate within their party for the those they want to represent them in the November 2018 General Election. Petitions are now being circulated for placement on the ballot for the March Primary, which leads to additional confusion by the electorate.
If you have questions concerning voting and voting eligibility, please contact the Office of the County Clerk Elections Department at (217)732-4148 or go to the website at www.logancountyil.gov under County Clerk for useful tools for the election, registration and voting.
