Grundy County Clerk Lana Phillips has announced new voter registration cards have been mailed as required by law.
Recent ward changes by the city of Morris and precinct changes made by the Grundy County Board have redrawn the boundaries of some districts and the new voter cards will reflect these changes.
“In the interest of going green and conserving our ... resources, we will, once again, print our cards on recycled paper that meets the standards of the Forestry Stewardship Council,” Phillips said.
Phillips urges voters to check their voter’s card and familiarize themselves with their districts and polling place.
Voters should sign the new cards and destroy the old ones.
In order to assist the clerk’s office in keeping their registration files up to date, any voter card received for an individual no longer residing in the household should be returned to the clerk’s office.
If the addressee is deceased and the death occurred out of Grundy County, please notify the clerk’s office in writing.
Anyone wishing to serve as a judge of election is encouraged to fill out the back of the voter registration postcard and return it to the county clerk’s office.
Registered voters who do not receive a voter’s card by Sept. 20 should notify the clerk’s election department at 815-941-3222.
