New procedures in place for early voting in Illinois

LaSalle County Times reports.

(Ed note: as I blogged earlier, Illinois did this one exactly right–they implemented new procedures during a low turnout, off year election. Kudos to state officials and the legislature for not backbiting on the problems in the spring and moving quickly to rectify the problems for the Fall.)
