Election-filing could give board struggle with no budget

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — An Illinois State Board of Elections official told a House committee Sunday there are not enough personal computers to handle certifying candidates late this fall for the 2018 election. Kevin Turner is the board’s director of information technology. He says the board is seeking about $25,000 for computers in the budget proposal. The General Services Appropriations Committee was one of several conducting public hearings Sunday on a $37 billion spending plan the Senate sent the House last week.
