Scott County Auditor Roxanna Moritz addressed the Association of Election Commission Officials of Illinois (AECOI) on May 7, 2015 during the annual meeting of the group.  Roxanna spoke to the group about Iowa’s, and more specifically Scott County’s experience in implementing election day registration.

Various cities in Illinois have election commissions which are responsible for conducting all elections held within the jurisdiction of the city.  (None of the cities in Rock Island County have election commissions.  All elections are conducted by the office of county clerk.)

The topic of election day registration was especially timely. This year will mark the beginning of precinct level election day registration in Illinois, and a July 7th special election in the 18th Congressional District will be the first election under the new law.
