Kane County to open election complaint line

ST. CHARLES, Ill. — The Kane County State's Attorney's Office is encouraging voters who experience or see problems or irregularities on Election Day to report them.

In a statement Wednesday, State's Attorney Joseph McMahon said the office is opening an election complaint line to take calls from voters. The phone line will be available from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Nov. 6, and will be staffed by lawyers from the state's attorney's office.

Voters may report any possible illegal election activity, such as illegally placed campaign signs, electioneering, or people being denied their voting rights.

McMahon said in years the county has operated an election hotline it has not had any major violations and he expects that to be the case again this year.

The number for the complaint line is 630-208-5328.
