Heated three-way race for coroner

Voters on Nov. 3 will decide who will be the next to lead the Will County Coroner’s office, a division of the county that is often in the spotlight with the rising deaths from the opioid overdoses and the Coronavirus pandemic. An important part of the county, the Coroner’s office is the final say on causes of death, and was recently thrust into the limelight following the death in late January of Eric Lurry Jr. A Joliet Police dash cam video surfaced over the summer showing one officer using a baton to attempt to scoop something out of Lurry’s mouth, while another held his nose. Lurry was pronounced at AMITA St. Joseph Medical Center and following an investigation, longtime County Coroner Patrick K. O’Neil ruled Lurry died from ingesting large amounts of narcotics.

New vote by mail technology for vision-impaired voters

Will County Clerk Lauren Staley Ferry is offering visually impaired voters in Will County an option to vote by mail without assistance in the 2020 election thanks to a system that allows them to use audio instructions to navigate and mark their ballots. The system, known as Accessible Vote By Mail (AVBM), is similar to the Illinois State Board of Elections’ MOVE (Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment) process that allows overseas military personnel to receive a ballot electronically then return a marked hard copy to an election authority for voting.
