2008_11_03_lisa.jpgWorried whether or not things in Illinois will be on the up-and-up when you cast your vote tomorrow? Have no fear, State Attorney General Lisa Madigan is on the case. According to The Lisa, 166 investigator teams will fan out across the state to monitor the election and make sure everything is good to g: no voting irregularities or voter fraud, to name a few.. Northern Illinois will get a large majority of those teams (125) while down state will do with fewer (41). Some other issues include no voter intimidation within 100 feet of a polling place and the right to a new paper ballot if you made a mistake on the original - as long as it hasn't been cast.
