Polling places have been busy across Sangamon County today and that’s no surprise to County Clerk Don Gray.
Gray says early voting numbers are up dramatically this year compared to the last election for governor four years ago nearly double, in fact.
And Gray says that interest and enthusiasm appears to be carrying through Election Day itself. He says the voting has gone smoothly locally, but says if anyone does encounter any problems, they can call the county election office at 753-8683.
Other agencies are also monitoring today’s election, including the Sangamon County State’s Attorney, the Illinois Attorney General, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
