Early Voting schedule announced and commemorative “I voted” decal unveiled.
Today, McHenry County Clerk, Joe Tirio and his staff unveiled the first in a series of limited edition, commemorative “I voted” decals. The sticker features a bust of Susan B. Anthony, champion of women’s suffrage.
“Recognizing a woman’s right to vote was a landmark moment in our country’s history, and a fitting subject for our first commemorative decal. Susan B. Anthony is the undisputed leader of the women’s suffrage movement and is an icon of our country’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.”
The decals will be deployed to all early voting locations in limited quantities. “In addition to honoring Miss Anthony and the 19th amendment, our hope is to get more of our citizens out to vote early, to reduce congestion on Election Day.”
Early voting begins in the Clerk’s office on February 6th. Between March 3rd and March 16th, you can vote at one of our 13 early voting locations. “We’ve expanded our early voting opportunities to make it easier than ever before to find a convenient place and time to vote.”, Tirio continues, “We encourage early voting for its convenience, and because ‘Life Happens’ and sometimes it happens on Election Day. Voting early ensures your vote gets counted.”
