QUINCY — As part of requirements of the National Voter Registration Act and Help America Vote Act, new voter registration cards are being mailed to all active Adams County voter during the month of July.

If you do not receive a card and believe that you are currently an active voter of Adams County, contact the county clerk’s office to confirm your registration status.

If voters receive a card that is not theirs, they should alert the post office by writing “does not live
here” and place it back in their mailbox. Voter cards that are returned to the clerk’s office as undeliverable by the United States Postal Service will receive a follow up confirmation letter.

“Ensuring that our voter rolls in Adams County are up to date is of vast importance,” said County Clerk Ryan Niekamp. “We take a lot of pride and put a lot of work into maintaining our voter rolls every single day. Sending out of voter cards is another tool we have that helps maintain our rolls. It’s imperative that voters also participate in assisting with keeping these rolls clean by updating their information as it changes.”

This project is being paid for through a grant from the Illinois State Board of Elections.

Voters with any questions may call the County Clerk’s Office at: (217) 277-2150 or e-mail
