Given the current climate and health advisory to avoid group gatherings Governor Pritzker has reported there is a concern voter turnout may be light for the March 17th primary and has reached out to municipalities to spread the word about alternative voting options. Being able to exercise your right to vote is an incredibly important part of our democratic process and I want all in our community who wish to do so be able to safely take part.
Today, March 12, 2020, is the last day to request an absentee ballot to vote by mail. You can do so by visiting https://www.elections.il.gov/ElectionOperations/VotingByMail.aspx and scrolling to the bottom of the page and selecting “Download – Illinois Application for Vote by Mail Ballot” and following the prompts.
It is also encouraged to vote early as to avoid larger crowds on March 17, 2020. To see a list of all early voting locations and hours please visit https://www.elections.il.gov/VotingAndRegistrationSystems/EarlyVotingLocationsSearch.aspx and select the appropriate items from the drop-down menu.
Stay safe and thank you for exercising your right to vote.
