CHICAGO (AP) — Attorney General Lisa Madigan says staff from her office will monitor Illinois’ primary election to ensure voting rights are protected and polls are accessible.
In a statement, Madigan says voters should call her office if they suspect illegal or improper activity.
Illinois’ primary is Tuesday, and polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Madigan says voters have the right to cast a ballot if they’re in line when polls close at 7 p.m., or at any other time during voting hours.
If a voter can’t read, has a disability or has trouble understanding English, they have the right to request assistance.
Madigan also says no one is allowed to try to influence a voter within 100 feet of a polling place.
