Vote by Mail

The DuPage Election Division is encouraging voters to vote by mail to avoid having to go to the polls during the Covid-19 Pandemic.  Their website has extensive information.  Watch their video and look at our checklist for voting.  You can find answers to your questions in the Q&A with County Clerk Jean Kaczmerak, the Glen Ellyn's League's FAQ and Five Reasons to have Confidence in Mail-in Voting. These include information about the security of voting by mail. If you are not sure how you signed your name when you registered, you can look on your Voter Registration ID Card sent out by the County Clerk.  (e.g.,  James Q. Madison or James Madison or James Quincy Madison).  The top part of the ID card looks like:

Changed your mind about Vote By Mail? You can vote in person at any Early Voting Site or on Election Day at your polling site. Bringing your VBM Ballot and envelope is preferable. If you do not bring your VBM Ballot and envelope to early voting, you will still be able to vote. If you do not bring in your VBM Ballot and envelope on Election Day, you will cast a provisional vote.
