    My 18 year old son registered to vote on Feb 15th at the Woodstock DMV, and still didn’t have his card the day before the election. We took his voter registration receipt with to vote today directly at the Clerk’s office, and his registration wasn’t in the system at all. They decided to register him on the spot so that he could vote without having to take a provisional ballot. The election judge struggled for over 5 minutes because the system kept telling him that my son’s street address wasn’t valid, even though it’s the same street address on my own voter ID card (on a 118 year old house!). The judge finally forced it to accept the precinct number, and somehow got his registration to work and my son was able to vote. The gentleman cautioned us, though, that my son may have trouble voting in the future, and to come back to the Clerk’s office if he doesn’t receive his new voter registration card in 30 days!!

    The McHenry County Clerk has decided to eliminate dozens of polling locations in 2018, presumably in an attempt to save money. The Clerk has not provided evidence that this plan will save any money at all, but it will definitely make it harder for thousands of citizens to vote. As many as 10 precincts are being crammed into one location. Parking will be at a premium at many of the consolidated locations, especially for elderly and disabled voters. The right to vote is the most important right we have as American citizens. We must not allow a bureaucrat to jeopardize our ability to participate in American democracy.

    Petition

    To: Mary McClellan, McHenry County Clerk

    The right to vote is the most important right we have as American citizens. The current plan to eliminate a large portion of the polling places in McHenry County is a threat to our democracy. We believe that cramming up to 10 precincts into one polling location, and moving many precincts to unfamiliar and inconvenient venues, will result in the disenfranchisement of thousands of McHenry County citizens, especially the elderly and disabled who will be the most inconvenienced by these drastic changes. Please cancel or delay this ill-advised and untested plan.
