That's more than two years after the federal deadline, which is this Sunday.

Dan White, executive director of the State Board of Elections, says the state has kept the U.S. Justice Department apprised of its progress.

He says he doesn't expect Illinois to lose any of $98 million it's received under the federal Help America Vote Act. Most of that money is going to buy voting machines for the disabled, but some will be used for the database.

A survey by the National Association of Secretaries of State shows at least 11 states will miss the database deadline.
