SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WTVO) — The Illinois State Board of Elections says a technical problem caused their voter registration website to crash on Monday, 43 days before the presidential election.
“We are working to get the site up and running again as soon as possible,” the SBE said.
The SBE says more than 1.7 million Illinois voters have requested vote-by-mail ballots so far.
Registered voters who requested a vote-by-mail ballot are expected to receive their ballots after September 24th.
The Winnebago County Clerk’s Office says it is expecting to mail over 15,000 ballots.
“Ballots which are mailed must be postmarked no later than Election Day, November 3rd , to be counted,” according to County Clerk Lori Gummow.
