Early voting begins later this month in Illinois, but the window of opportunity to register to vote will be closing soon.  If you want to avoid voting on Election Day April 7, Madison County Clerk Debbie Ming - Mendoza says you may want to think about voting early.  She says you can cast a ballot beginning March 23 at her office in Edwardsville.

There are several races throughout Madison County is which a new candidate is challenging an incumbent.  Mendoza tells The Big Z she would like to see a 20-percent turnout, as consolidated elections typically don’t have the turnout seen during presidential elections.
