Naperville, IL. (ECWd) -
A Complaint has been filed against the DuPage County Election Commission alleging the commission moved boundaries of one precinct and two legislative districts without proper authority to move the boundaries.
It involved moving certain properties out of Naperville Township Precinct #25, the 49th Representative District, and the 25th Legislative District. Those properties were moved, without authority into Naperville Township Precinct #6, the 41st Representative District, and the 21st Legislative District.
It seeks to have the commission reverse its move and ensure that residents of certain real estate within the county vote in the legislative districts that they are actually part of, based on the most recent approved map.
It asks the Court to order the commission to distribute the correct ballots to the properties in question, and order the commission to refrain from delivering the wrong ballot to those properties, and complains of a violation of voter's rights.
Candidate and incumbent State Representative Grant Wehrli is the Plaintiff. His attorney is Keri-Lyn Krafthefer of Ancel, Glink, Diamond, Bush, DiCianni & Krafthefer P.C.
We understand there is a Hearing on the Complaint scheduled for September 19th in DuPage Circuit Court.
