(OLNEY) Richland County Clerk Alice Mullinax announced late last week that with the March 20 Primary Election quickly approaching, there is currently a hold-up in the ballot printing due to an objection of a state office candidate. While it was hoped the situation would have been settled by now, it still continues. Since this is a candidate issue, it has tied the hands of County Clerks and Election Administrators across Illinois and as soon as early voting is allowed to begin, it will be posted and announced through all media. Those that plan to vote by mail can call their County Clerk’s office starting tomorrow to request an application for ballot and as soon as the ballots are received, they will be mailed out. While there will be three different ballots available, a registered voter can request only one. The Democrat Party has a green ballot, the Republican Party a yellow ballot, and the Non-Partisan ballot is white. The public can contact their respective County Clerk’s office during regular office hours, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 until 4:00. However, remember that all government offices are closed today on this Monday for Presidents Day 2018.
