Early voting in the city of Rockford won’t happen Thursday as planned.
The Board of Election Commissioners say it’s due to an ongoing candidate petition in a statewide race. A court still has to make a decision.
Early voting is now scheduled to begin on the 21st. Anyone who shows up to the Rockford Board of Elections prior to that will be given an application to vote by mail. It’s possible other jurisdictions will have to delay early voting as well.
