Electioneering Map Released for Montgomery County

Tue, 09 Oct 2018 12:40:49 CDT

   

The Montgomery County Clerk's office recently announced the boundaries where no electioneering should take place or political signage be displayed at the Historic Courthouse in Hillsboro through Election Day.

Electioneering is defined as working for or against or in the interest of a party, candidate or proposition. Illinois law says that if a polling room is located within a public or private building with two or more floors and the room is located on the ground floor, then the markers shall be placed 100 horizontal feet from each entrance to the polling place room used by voters.

After reviewing law and conferring with State's Attorney Bryant Hitchings, County Board Chairman Evan Young and Democrat and Republican county party leaders, no electioneering or political signage will be allowed within all parking spaces located in the inner circle of the Courthouse Square, five parking spaces located on the west side of the Historic Courthouse in front of the Farm Bureau building, and five spaces located on the north side of the Historic Courthouse. Violation of this law could result in a Class A Misdemeanor.

A copy of the electioneering map may be found on the county clerk's website, montgomeryco.com/countyclerk. Anyone with questions is encouraged to call the County Clerk's office at 532-9530.
