Referendums will appear on 2nd ballot
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Friday, February 24, 2006
Barrington Community Unit School District 220 voters will cast two ballots in the March 21 primary election, the Cook County Clerk’s office said today.
Two district referendums will appear on a second paper ballot that voters will receive at their early voting site, with their absentee materials or at their polling place on Election Day.
The requests to place the two referendums on the ballot were filed prior to the Jan. 18 deadline but the school district sent them to the county’s Tax Extension Unit, not the Election Department, which is located in another building.
The discovery was not made until school district officials alerted the Clerk’s office last week, days after the ballots had been printed.
Voters living in Unit School District 220 will be provided the second ballot to vote at their polling location. After making selections, each voter will place the voted second ballot into an envelope and seal it.
After the polls close on Election Day, the election judges at those 22 precincts will open the envelopes, tally the votes manually and provide the results for their respective precincts to the Clerk’s office.
Unofficial results will most likely not be available on election night. The Clerk’s office will issue the results of the referendums as soon as they become available.
