All labels, going back to the first mailings in February, showed "Mar 20." That is a reference to the March 2020 primary election, not the date the envelope was mailed.

The partners , perhaps more than ever, were vital to succeeding in adverse conditions--and in the turnout department, doing as well as (and exceeding) most other jurisdictions. Thank you + thanks also to Voters,

Amy Klobuchar filed a withdrawal with the Illinois State Board of Elections, which then advised election authorities to not tabulate or report votes for Klobuchar. Klobuchar delegates, though, did not file withdrawal paperwork.

Amy Klobuchar was the only candidate to file a withdrawal with the Illinois State Board of Elections, and the ISBE thus ordered that votes for Amy Klobuchar would not be tabulated or reported. Klobuchar delegates, however, did not file withdrawal paperwork.

The Board does not supply or distribute food to polling places. From Page 3 of the Election Judge handbook: "NOTE: Everyone is responsible for their own food and drink on Election Day. You should plan to bring or buy what you will need for the whole day."
