FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RE: Health and Safety Concerns:
Frank L. Byrd, the Jackson County Clerk and Recorder, will be limiting the number of poll-watchers in the courthouse on election evening, March 17, 2020, to adhere to Governor Pritzker’s social distancing recommendations. Although the present risk is low in our area, health care officials are advising that we should all minimize contact due to the COVID-19 VIRUS.
Each established Political Party Chairman has agreed to limit poll-watchers to one per party affiliation and one per candidate. The media will be allowed inside the courthouse in a designated area.
My main objective is to keep the integrity of the election and keep the citizens safe.
