County Board Did Not Approve Hours Changes
Election day closure of the Clerk’s Office has been happening because Mary McClellan decided so after the troubles during the 2016 primary elections.
The closures have never been approved by the county board.
“(b) In counties of less than 500,000 population from 8 a. m. to 5 p. m. of each working day except Saturdays and legal holidays, but in such counties the office shall remain open until noon the Saturday before general, primary or special election days.
Provided, that the days on which such office shall be open and the hours of opening and closing of the office of the county clerk may be changed and otherwise fixed and determined by the county board of any county. Any such action taken by the county board shall be by an appropriate resolution passed at a regular meeting. “
