Staff Summary
* The Lake County Clerk's Office applied for and received a grant from the Center for Tech and Civic Life. These funds need to be used for the purposes of planning and operationalizing safe and secure election administration, voter education and outreach, updated training as well as support technology improvements for voting in Lake County.
* To facilitate the Lake County Clerk's goals of voter outreach, education and other election related services, the Clerk's Office identified a need for a mobile satellite trailer. Purchasing a specialized trailer made for delivering County Clerk services was identified to meet these needs, as well as provide these specialized services in a more convenient and personalized manner throughout the county.
* The BizBox which is the name of the specialized trailer is unrivaled in the market. No other product was found that could meet the high level of security and functionality required. BixBox can be tailored to function in a diverse variety of rolls to support evolving needs. After visiting other counties that own a Bizbox, it was determined that this would also fulfil Lake County's need for a mobile satellite to provide innovative and convenient services across our large county.
* Pursuant to the Counties Code, Chapter 55 of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (55 ILCS 5/3-2003.2) the County Clerk has the authority to control the internal operations of his or her office and to procure the necessary equipment, materials and services to perform the duties of the Office.
* The Lake County Clerk has agreed that the award shall be expended on specific election administration needs which include non-partisan voter education, voting equipment or supplies and election administration equipment and she may allocate funds among those needs....
