Precincts Where More Democrats than Republicans Voted for President — 7 Comments

  1. It makes me happy that my old precinct, Algonquin 10, had more Dems than Repubs.

    Algonquin 10 also voted for Obama and Beaubien in 2012.

  2. If Dem had more running for local positions with more than one running in the Dem primary that number would of been way higher.
    Had some of the RINO’s ran as Dem like they really are, the totals in the primaries would be way different.

  3. And MORE section 8 dwellers are on the way – are you ready for what follows ?

  4. Question (because I simply want to understand, not start a series of snarky repsonses):

    Is there a reason why so many precincts are needed in our townships?

    I’m presuming it has to do with ensuring convenience and access for the community, yet…

  5. Great question eminclake.

    Precinct size is determined by Illinois State Statute:

    http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/fulltext.asp?DocName=001000050K11-2

    Sec. 11-2. The County Board in each county, except in counties having a population of 3,000,000 inhabitants or over, shall, at its regular meeting in June, divide its election precincts which contain more than 800 voters, into election districts so that each district shall contain, as near as may be practicable, 500 voters, and not more in any case than 800. Whenever the County Board ascertains that any election precinct contains more than 600 registered voters, it may divide such precinct, at its regular meeting in June, into election precincts so that each precinct shall contain, as nearly as may be practicable, 500 voters.

    We are actually out of code in a few precincts and we should divide them. However, there is a cost that comes with dividing precincts. More election judges, more vote tabulation machines, ect.

    Kathie Schultz and I had a very long conversation about this.

    There are pros and cons to expansion – but either way – we need to follow the law.

    Hope this helps,

  6. Doing the math on the number of registered voters:

    Number of registered voters this election: 205,178

    Number of precincts required based on 500 voters per precinct: 410

    Current number of precincts: 212.

    Fully staffed precinct has five election judges.

    Election judges required for 212 precincts = 1,060

    Election judges required for 410 precincts = 2,050

    Because many people are pushing for consolidation of government, I suggest that instead of pursuing the 500 registered voter per precinct, State Legislators change the number of recommended registered voters per precinct to 1,000 with redistribution required when a precinct reaches 1,800 registered voters.

    We already have at least 71 precincts with a registered voter count in excess of 1,000 voters with a few having more than 1,800..

    Why?

    We now have two weeks of early voting, vote by mail plus absentee voting.

    Plus God only knows how many living registered voters there are.

    Due to federal election law, it can take up to two years for the County Clerk to remove a registered voter.

    Take a look at the history of registered voters in this
    County:

    2016 Primary election 205,178
    2015 Consolidated election 206,103
    2014 General election 206,197
    2014 Primary election 204,440
    2013 Consolidated election 204,062
    2013 Consolidated Primary * 131,527
    2012 General election 203,225
    2012 Primary election 199,027
    2011 Consolidated election 202,494
    2010 General election 202,033
    2010 Primary election 200,688
    2009 Consolidated election 200,853
    2009 Consolidated Primary * 148,350
    2008 General election 199,378
    2008 Primary election 188,449

    * Partial county

    During this same time period our Population WENT DOWN!!

    During this same time period, the number of precincts remained at 212.

    The current County Clerk appears to have gone into this last election without proper staff, inadequate training of judges and an apparent total lack of respect for the conduct of prior elections in the County but, with her picture on most every display screen related to the election.

    I hope the screens remain as they are to remind me we need to replace her.

    That said, the OBVIOUS OVERSTATEMENT of the number of registered voters is not all her fault.

    The false number of registered voters is primarily due to federal election law.

    To make the above situation even more ridiculous, there is a drive in Springfield to AUTOMATICALLY register everyone who applies for a driver license.

    This state does not require PROOF of citizenship for a driver license nor does it require proof of citizenship to register to vote.

    If you say you are a citizen, you are a citizen.
