    As part of my goal in the Camlin Five Point Plan to help citizens become more involved in their government, I am pleased to publish this information on the 2014 Primary Election. 
    It is my hope that this information makes it easier for constituents to exercise their most sacred right-- voting in our democracy! 
    Karen Kinney, the Rock Island County Clerk, has worked very hard to ensure that voting is accessible and easy, and she has a track record of executing smooth elections. Below is information I have received from her office regarding the Primary Election.


Primary Election Day is March 18, 2014.

Voter Registration closes on Tuesday, February 18, 2014. If you'd like to register, please contact me, the Township office, or the County Clerk's office before February 18.
