Lawsuit questions East St. Louis voter rolls

Tuesday, 24 September 2013 13:30 Published in Local News

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - An activist wants a federal judge to order county or state officials to run East St. Louis elections, arguing that more than 5,200 people are illegally registered to vote in the struggling southwestern Illinois city.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that Matthias Hawkins filed his lawsuit earlier this month against East St. Louis' Board of Election Commissioners.

That panel conducts all elections in the city and is responsible for purging the local voter rolls of residents who have died or moved away.

The commission's executive director, Kandrise Mosby, says the panel follows Illinois law and purges the voter rolls every two years, with that latest effort expected to be completed in a month.

No hearing date on Hawkins' lawsuit has been scheduled as of Tuesday.

CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn's administration is trickling out information about what Illinois health insurance prices will be on the new marketplace that's a backbone of President Barack Obama's health care law.

Quinn's office announced Tuesday the monthly rates for the lowest-cost plan for a 25-year-old nonsmoker will be $120 in Chicago or $128 in Peoria. For a 40-year-old nonsmoker, the monthly cost of the cheapest plan would be $152 in Chicago or $163 in Peoria.

Most Illinois residents will be able to choose from at least 34 plans when the marketplace goes live Oct. 1.

Consumers will have to wait until then to learn exactly what choices will be available in their region and how much they'll pay. New tax credits will lower costs for some, depending on household income.
