Important to vote in Illinois primary

The March 20 general primary falls during the spring breaks of the University of Illinois, Parkland College and Champaign and Urbana public schools.

This election will decide who will run in the general election for many key positions — in our local and county governments, at the state level and in the U.S. Congress.

It's so important to our community that every eligible person make a plan to vote.The county clerk website is http://www.champaigncountyclerk.com. On it, one can register to vote, and find out information about the times and locations of early voting (through March 19). The county clerk's office phone number is 217-384-3722.If you're unsure about what's at stake, another great informational resource is the Champaign County Voters Alliance: http://www.votechampaign.org.

Please make a plan to vote.
