Marion County Clerk Announces Biennial Purge of Voter Registration System

If anyone has questions, please contact the Marion County Clerk's office by phone at 618-548-3852

The Marion County Clerk's Office has announced they are conducting a Biennial purge of the county's voter registration system.

County Clerk Steve Fox says in the coming days, every registered voter will receive a new Voter Registration I.D. card in the mail. Illinois law requires that every two years the clerk's office purges the system so voters who have moved but failed to re-register at a new address or voters who have moved out of our county can be identified.

If the information on your new I.D. card is correct, no action is required. Simply keep the I.D. card for your records. If the new I.D. card does NOT have your correct address, please make corrections on the back and return it to the clerk's office. If your last name has changed, you will need to re-register in person in clerk's office. You will need to bring proof of name change and a photo I.D.

Fox is also looking for election judges in several precincts throughout Marion County. Attached to the bottom of each voter I.D. card is a detachable Election Judge sign-up form. Anyone interested is encouraged to fill out that portion of the card and mail it back to the clerk's office. Paid training classes are held before each election, and Election Judges are paid for their service.

If anyone has questions, please contact the Marion County Clerk's office by phone at 618-548-3852, or in person in room 202 of the Marion County Courthouse at 100 East Main Street in Salem.
