Preview April's Ballots Online


WAUKEGAN, Illinois - GCounty Clerk Willard Helander announced today that Lake County registered voters may now preview their official ballot for the April 9 Consolidated Election at using the "What is on My Ballot?" link.


The user is prompted to supply registration name, house number, zip code and date of birth to view the correct ballot for the registered voter's address. Voters who have not supplied the County Clerk's office with a valid Illinois Driver's license number or last four digits of Social Security number will not be able to use the online feature.


Sample ballots may be printed, marked with the voter's choices, and taken into the polls for reference when voting.


"The one-click web preview of the official ballot is a very helpful first step to voters who wish to be informed about candidates and referendum," said Helander. "Our expanded online services have received positive response from our web users."
