Deadline for registering to vote approaching
“The majority of what you’re voting on in March is a selection for the party for the candidates for November. So really, this is part A of a two part election cycle. So it makes sense if you are going to be able to vote in November that you ought to have a choice in the selection for your party.”
The primary features all statewide elected officials and the congressional candidates for the 17th and 18th districts. Voters in Peoria County will weigh in on whether to raise the sales tax one-percent for school facility purposes. Some city of Peoria residents will also vote on whether to retain a District 150 board member. Residents should have two forms of identification to register to vote, including one with a current address.
