Kane County voters who observe or experience voting problems or irregularities during the Nov. 4 election should call the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office to report the problems, according to a news release issued Monday.
The Election Complaint Line will be available from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 4. 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, can 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, the release states.
“Voters rightfully expect an honest, fair and orderly election to choose their leaders,” Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon said, according to the release. “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 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 U.S. citizen and at least 18 years old.
The Election Complaint Line – 630-208-5328 – will be available from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 4.
