The Rockford election board is making sure election judges don't have a haunting past.
In an update to our investigation about election judges who are convicted sex offenders, we've learned all three sex offender election judges have been fired.
Executive Director Nancy Strain says from now on they will be checking the sexual offenders registry before hiring a judge and will possibly conduct criminal background checks in future elections.
