Contrary to the statements made in The Times' editorial this past Sunday, Lake County Democratic Election Board members, and its executive director, have been engaged, for the past four to six years, in significant cost-cutting measures relating to the conduct of elections in Lake County.
On Tuesday, officials working at a polling place at the American Legion hall, 443 E. 157th St., South Holland, had to twice remove an individual who claimed he was at the polling place as a poll watcher.
CROWN POINT | Someone had to lock the front door of the Lake County Government Complex about noon Monday to bring an end to the heavy balloting that characterized the final days of the early voting period.
