It looks like early voting and by-mail voting for Kane County citizens is a “go,” starting tomorrow (Thursday, Feb. 4, 2016.)

The Kane County Clerk’s Office posted a note on its KaneCountyElections.org webpage Tuesday, saying vote-by-mail and early voting will begin on schedule Thursday, but early voting only will be offered at the Kane County Clerk’s Office, 719 S. Batavia Ave., Building B, Geneva.

Kane County Clerk Kane County Clerk John A. Cunningham had announced last Thursday (Jan. 28, 2016) that “ongoing objections to several presidential candidates were not anticipated to be resolved by the State Board of Elections in time for ballots to be prepared” or in time for voting tabulators to be programmed for the opening of by-mail and early voting on Feb. 4.

The KaneCountyElections.org page contains additional information for Kane County citizens who want to learn more about the primary ballot: Sample ballots now are available online.
