It's Time for Secure Elections

“We face unprecedented data and cybersecurity threats. My first act as Clerk will be an audit of the voting systems that protect the integrity of our elections.”
KAREN YARBROUGH

Karen A. Yarbrough, Cook County Recorder of Deeds, is a full-time administrator, overseeing a $12 million budget and 140 employees – one of the largest Recorder’s office in the United States by volume. In that role, she has established herself as a national leader in the growing movement to change the office of county recorder from a place where property fraud happens, to a place where property fraud is confronted.

Karen has a B.A. in Business Management from Chicago State University, an M.A. in Inner City Studies from Northeastern Illinois University, and advanced leadership studies at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. Karen has served on numerous boards, enhancing the quality of life for citizens and has received many prestigious awards highlighting her advocacy, community service and legislative work.
