(Quincy, IL) — It’s anybody’s guess when voters who were turned away after a ballot shortage last week in a Western Illinois county will get to revote. Following a judge’s ruling that Adams County voters who didn’t get to vote can do so this week during an emergency late voting period, it’s since been announced that voting won’t happen on Monday because of a motion filed by the Attorney General’s Office in appellate court. A lawyer for the Attorney General’s Office appeared in Adams County Court on Friday to try to vacate the initial granting of the late voting period, but the motion was denied. Several other spots in Illinois had ballot shortage issues last week, including in St. Clair and Sangamon counties.
