State’s Attorney’s Election Complaint Hotline to Be Open for Nov. 4 General Election
Kane County voters who observe or experience voting problems or irregularities during the Nov. 4 general election should call the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office to report the problems.
The Election Complaint Line will be available from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 4, 2014.
Anyone who experiences or witnesses any possible illegal election activity, such as electioneering, illegally placed campaign signs or denial of voting rights at any of Kane County’s 228 voting precincts should call the hotline at (630) 208-5328.
The hotline will be staffed by representatives of the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office. Assistant State’s Attorneys will take the complaints about potential violations of Illinois election laws and are prepared to travel to polling places to ensure compliance with state election laws.
“Voters rightfully expect an honest, fair and orderly election to choose their leaders,” Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon said. “Our staff will be available to all who have concerns.
“We have never found a notable violation of election laws in the years we have had this complaint line available, and we expect this year to be no different.”
Voters should note that this hotline is not for election questions, such as polling times and places. Voters in need of election information should call the Kane County Clerk’s Election Help Line at (630) 232-5990. Eligible voters must be registered, a United States citizen and at least 18 years old.
