It was a busy week at the state Capitol. We’ll recap all the week’s top stories.
Krieger Asks Court To Stop Mesquite District City Council Primary Election
Ken Krieger, the candidate left off the ballot for the Peoria City Council race will be in federal court Friday. He is asking the court to halt next Tuesday’s primary election for the council seat. Krieger was left off the first two mailed ballots and now is asking for a special election. To remedy the situation, the city decided to mail out a third ballot with only the City Council race to rectify the mistake.
Voters then have the choice to mail that ballot back, turn it in at a remote polling location or vote on election day in a polling place. If a citizen decides to vote on the new ballot it will override any previous votes, but if someone who voted previously does not vote again their vote will count.
