State’s Attorney’s Election Complaint Line To Be Open For Nov. 6 General Election

Kane County voters who observe or experience voting problems or irregularities during the Nov. 6 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. 6, 2018.

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 291 voting precincts should call the hotline at 630-208-5328.

This includes all precincts in the city of Aurora that formerly were within the jurisdiction of the Aurora Election Commission. Voters abolished the commission earlier this year.

The complaint line 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 expect a fair, honest and orderly election process when they go to the polls to choose their leaders,” Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon said. “We will be available to all who have concerns.”

Voters should note that this complaint line is for Election Day only, and it is not for election questions, such as polling times and places. Voters who experience or witness concerns at any polling location during the early voting period, and 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.
