Kankakee, Illinois is the county seat of Kankakee County. It has a population of around 27,000 people. The town was founded in 1853, mostly as a railroad town. Those roots are visible today, as one of Amtrak’s major lines runs through the town.
Kankakee County is currently a party to a lawsuit against the state of Illinois regarding a new election law. The state law requires all electronic voting machines to have the ability to warn voters when they have under-voted (left a spot blank on one or more matters on the ballot). Citing privacy concerns, and the fact that the vast majority of under-votes are intentional, several counties, including Kankakee, have chosen not to follow the law, and are suing the state to prevent it from being enforced.
