Hong Kong VotersOur unprecedented turnout made Democrats Abroad the first -- and so far only -- 2016 Democratic Presidential Primary to beat turnout from 2008.

UPDATED: Judge rules Adams County, Illinois clerk must allow late voting

QUINCY — An Adams County judge has ruled voters who showed up to polling places Tuesday but were turned away because ballots were unavailable should have the right to cast a late ballot starting Monday.

Judge Chet Vahle granted a mandatory injunction Thursday afternoon ordering Adams County Clerk Chuck Venvertloh to conduct late voting from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. March 21 to 25 in the clerk's office at the Adams County Courthouse, noting there was no punitive or financial recourse he could order to provide residents who were unable to vote during Tuesday's primary election after many polling places ran out of ballots.
Adams County State's Attorney Jon Barnard, who filed for the injunction, said enough safeguards were in place to prevent fraud in the future.

“It is no exaggeration that we ask people to die to protect this right,” Barnard said.

He said a perfect storm was in place to bring such a high turnout on Tuesday, including major national and local races, local issues and nice weather to encourage people to vote.

In order to cast a late ballot, a voter must sign an affidavit swearing under oath under the penalty of perjury affirming that they attempted to vote but were unable to because there were no ballots at their precinct, or they must be entered in the electronic poll books at precincts.

All Quincy precincts and four precincts near Quincy use the electronic polling books, Venvertloh said.
