DeKalb County Clerk Researches On-Demand Ballot Printing System
DeKalb County Clerk Doug Johnson said it’s time to work on fulfilling the promises he made.
The Sycamore Republican won his first elected four-year term as clerk on Tuesday. The Daily Chronicle reports Johnson is researching a ballot on-demand system that prints individual ballots at the polling place.
This year, the county ordered 44,000 ballots, but only about half of eligible voters came to polling places Tuesday. The system would prevent unused ballots going to waste.
