Sue Rennels, Coles County Clerk, has announced the mailing of new Voter Identification Cards.
State Statute requires that every two years the voter registration system be updated to confirm that all voter information is current. Voter ID cards show the precinct that a voter lives in, as well as legislative, county board, township, school and fire districts. The voter’s polling site and address are also listed.
If you receive a Voter ID card for someone who has never or is no longer residing at your address, please write “Not at this Address” on the face of the ID card and place the card back in the mail for return to the Coles County Clerk’s office.
There are currently 31,428 registered voters in Coles County.
Anyone with a change of address or with questions regarding their voter registration status is invited to contact the County Clerk’s Office at 348-0524.
The next election will be March 20, 2018.
