Apply online now to Vote By Mail for the November 3, 2020 Presidential Election

Post Date:06/19/2020 12:01 PM

On Tuesday, June 16, 2020, Governor Pritzker signed new legislation that includes important measures to ensure safe and active participation in the upcoming Presidential General Election on November 3, 2020 in consideration of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Among other initiatives, the legislation expands vote-by-mail efforts, requiring local election authorities to send either by mail or email, an application to vote by mail in the November 3, 2020 election to anyone who cast a ballot in the last three elections, (November 2018 General Election, April 2019 Consolidated Election or March 2020 General Election Primary) or to any voter who registered or changed addresses after the March Primary. The new law takes effect immediately and applies to the November 3, 2020 election only.

You may apply online now to Vote By Mail for the upcoming Presidential Election in November.  

 When you apply online to Vote By Mail, the Cook County Clerk's office will send you emails:

  • When your ballot is mailed to you,
  • When the Clerk's office receives your Ballot Return Envelope and
  • When your ballot has been processed and counted.

The Cook County Clerk's office will start mailing ballots in late September/early October 2020.  All Vote By Mail ballots will come with postage-paid Ballot Return Envelopes and must be postmarked before or on Election Day, November 3, 2020.  Learn more here.

If you have any questions, please contact Village Clerk Karen Agoranos or call 847/818-5333.
