The Sangamon County Clerk Don Gray is reminding residents Tuesday, November 7 is not election day.

While many calendars show Tuesday, November 7 as Election Day that's not the case in Sangamon County.

Gray says that may be the case in other states but it’s an off year in Illinois. The next election will be the General Primary on March 20, 2018.

“The election office has been receiving many phone calls inquiring where they vote and who’s on the ballot. I’ve also been approached a lot on the street asking me about the upcoming fall election.” Gray stated. “The public should know that Illinois does not have a November fall election this year. Take this reminder of a potential election as a very good time to ensure that one is actively and correctly registered to vote for the next Primary Election in March of 2018.”

For questions or options to register to vote, please visit or call the Sangamon County Election Office at (217) 753-8683.
