Rock Island County Board member under investigation after voting machine incident

News

A member of the Rock Island County board is under investigation after being seen taking photographs of voting machines at the county building in Downtown Rock Island.

The complaint was filed by Rock Island County Clerk Karen Kinney back in April.

She says the board member admitted to trying to obtain serial numbers off of the machine, but not to gain any information for personal reasons.

Instead, the member was following up on a complaint made by someone else, against the county clerk’s office.

The Rock Island County Sheriff’s Department is still investigating, and the board member is in full cooperation with the investigation.
