Clerk Considers Campus Polling

Macomb, IL – The McDonough County Clerk's office is asking the county board to create two more voting precincts in Macomb. Clerk Florine Miller says all WIU residence halls would be located in the two new precincts. She says many off-campus residents objected to having to vote on-campus. Miller says under the proposal they would continue to vote at the Wesley United Methodist Church. She says if the precincts are approved, more election judges will be needed. She says the change should not add other costs to an election.
