Attorney General Lisa Madigan says staff from her office will monitor Illinois' primary election to ensure voting rights are protected and polls are accessible. Madigan says voters should call her office if they suspect illegal or improper activity. Illinois polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. tomorrow. Madigan says voters have the right to cast a ballot if they're in line when polls close at 7 p.m., or at any other time during voting hours.
If a voter can't read, has a disability or has trouble understanding English, they have the right to request assistance. Madigan also says no one is allowed to try to influence a voter within 100 feet of a polling place.
