This follows in the wake of the city of Rockford and Winnebago county getting their ballots printed wrong twice, and a voting machine glitch in Cook county that caused a voting machine to cast a person ballot for Democrat when they tried voting Republican. If you haven’t heard that person was a Republican candidate for state Representative and he was trying to vote for himself.

Bill Bloom, the Rock Island County Republican Party chairman, announced Wednesday October 22, 2014 that the party is seeking an injunction against County Clerk Karen Kinney and her office.
In an email to local media, Bloom claimed that the local Republicans “filed a complaint requesting an injunction… [after] poll watchers observed personnel at the County Clerk’s office opening absentee ballots.”
Kinney refuted those claims Thursday, October, 23, 2014.
Rock Island County States Attorney John McGehee said that Kinney was ‘preparing the votes to be tabulated,’ but she had not tabulated them yet.
Bloom claimed that the votes can’t legally be opened until Election Day.
