Early Voting Begins in Livingston County

Early Voting Begins in Livingston County

On February 5, 2016, Livingston County Clerk Kristy Masching announced that Early Voting in the County Clerk’s Office and Vote By Mail will be available beginning Monday, February 8, 2016.

Early Voting which was to begin Thursday, February 4, 2016, was on hold until the State Board of Elections could review objections to several Presidential Candidates.  The State Board of Elections resolved the objections much sooner than they anticipated and were able to certify their results to the County Clerks a few days before early voting was to begin.   She stated that their elections vendor, Liberty Systems was able to finalize their ballots and set up the early voting equipment on Friday, February 5th.

Early Voting will take place between February 8, 2016 and March 14, 2016.  This process allows any registered voter in Livingston County to vote in person at the County Clerk’s office prior to Election Day.

Voters wishing to vote by mail may obtain an application by contacting the County Clerk’s Office, or by visiting the Clerk’s website at www.livingstoncounty-il.org, (Click on the following:  County Services, County Clerk, Elections).  The last day an application for a vote by mail ballot can be received and a ballot mailed is March 10, 2016.  Masching would like to remind voters that no reason or excuse is needed to vote by mail or vote early in the Clerk’s Office.
