COVID-19 is still an ongoing pandemic and our campaign encourages you to use recommended social distancing and to vote safely. While every vote this election counts, we urge that while casting votes, you do so in the most comfortable option available to you and your families.
As a response to Coronavirus, Vote by Mail will be the primary method of voting for the 2020 General Election. By August 1, your election authority sent vote by mail applications to any voter who participated in the 2018 General Election, the 2019 Consolidated Elections, or the 2020 Primary Election. Applications were also sent to anyone who registered or changed their address between March 18 and July 31 of 2020.
If you would like to apply for a Vote By Mail ballot, you must submit an application by October 29th. Keep in mind, that if you submit an application and decide to vote in person via Early Voting or by voting on Election Day, you will be required to bring in your VBM Ballot and the Return Envelope. In exchange, you will receive a provisional ballot. Ballots will be sent out to applicants starting September 24th.
Early Voting will begin on on September 24th. For Kane County, you can vote at Kane County Elections Main Office and the Aurora Satellite Office. In DuPage County, you can vote at any of the locations found at this link. In Cook County, sometime in mid-September, the locations can be found here.
Election Day will take place on November 3rd.
You do not have to Vote by Mail. States throughout the country are emphasizing that this is the safest way to participate in the upcoming General Election. You still have the option to vote in person either by utilizing your county’s Early Vote Program or by voting on Election Day at your designated polling place.
You can obtain an application by using the respective link above for your county. In order to Vote by Mail, your application has to be sent to the Election Authority by October 29th.
Ballots will not be sent out by September 24th and should be received by October 1st. If you haven’t received one by the latter date, please contact your county clerk.
Upon receipt of your ballot, each county will confirm it by either sending you an email or a text. In each of the counties throughout the 49th District, you can view the status of your submitted by clicking on the respective Vote by Mail Information link.
