SG library serves as early voting site

By on January 15, 2010

Sugar Grove—The Sugar Grove Public Library announced that it will make space in the new building available for early voting.

Library staff are not involved in the early voting process. Early voting at the library involves Kane County election judges with Kane County election equipment using the Board Meeting Room for 13 days in January. The location is one among many available to residents for early voting. The voting equipment can take votes from most Kane County residents, with the exception being the residents of the City of Aurora.

The early voting schedule at the Sugar Grove Library is Thursday, Jan. 14, 1 to 8 p.m.; Friday, Jan. 15, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Saturday, Jan. 16, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Tuesday, Jan. 19, 1 to 8 p.m.; Wednesday, Jan. 20, 1 to 8 p.m.; Thursday, Jan. 21, 1 to 8 p.m.; Friday, Jan. 22, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Saturday, Jan. 23, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Tuesday, Jan. 26, 1 to 8 p.m.; and Wednesday, Jan. 27, 1 to 8 p.m.

According to the Kane County Election website, “Early voting allows voters to cast a full ballot before the observed election day. Although voters can still go to their polling place on Election Day, this is intended to make voting easier for everyone. This cuts down on lines at the polling place as well as allowing voters to vote when it fits their schedule.”
