JOLIET, Ill. – The Will County Board declared on Tuesday its approval of a $7.8 million investment for purchasing new election equipment. Funding will be drawn from the General Reserve to ensure the integrity of future elections. 

With current systems surpassing their lifespan, the Will County Clerk’s office conducted an extensive review process involving over 40 interviews, demonstrations, and site visits. 

Chairman Judy Ogalla emphasized the urgency, stating, “The Board recognized the need to update the system that the Clerk’s office is using at this time and chose to move swiftly to have this new system available for the 2024 election cycle.
