MARSHALL, Ill. (WTHI) - The Illinois primary election is Tuesday and organizers were busy setting up polling places Monday afternoon.
Nancee Snedeker is the Marshall Township Supervisor. She was one of a handful of people setting up voting booths and tables so election day runs smoothly for everyone.
"They just need to come, go to their precinct table, they'll give the first person their name and then they'll sign their ballot slip and they'll get their ballot and go in to a booth and cast their ballot and then when they're leaving they'll deposit that in the counter."
Voters will not just be picking candidates. There are three proposals impacting schools, taxes and alcohol sales.
In Crawford county voters can mark "yes" or "no" to establishing a new community unit school district including Hutsonville and Palestine.
In Jasper county voters can decide if they want to allow alcohol sales in the Village of Willow Hill or keep things the same and prohibit sales.
In Richland county voters can decide if they want a 1% sales tax to help pay for a proposed $25 million renovation to the county high school.
Back in Marshall, organizers say no matter how you feel about the issues they hope you turn opinions into votes.
Snedeker says, "You want your voice to be heard whether you're backing a particular candidate or not, you just want your voice to be heard in an election."
The polls open at 6am and close at 7pm.
