Ways to Vote
Registered voters may cast a ballot prior to Election Day without having to provide a reason for wanting to vote early. This ballot is cast by personal appearance at the office of the election authority or at an Early Voting Center in Cook County or DuPage County. The period for early voting begins the 40th day preceding an election and extends through the end of the day before Election Day.
Vote by Mail
Any eligible registered voter may Vote by Mail beginning 40 days prior to an Election. A voter must obtain an application for a vote by mail ballot, either by mail, in person or online. Upon obtaining the application and completing it, the application must be returned to the election authority, either the Cook County Clerk's Office or the DuPage Election Commission, within the appropriate time frame.
You may obtain an application for a vote by mail ballot at the Office of Village Clerk Kristy Merrill or online.
Additional provisions and requirements apply to Military and Overseas Citizens.
Health Care Facility Voting: Any qualified voter that has been admitted to a health care facility (hospital, nursing home, or rehabilitation center) not more than 14 days before the election or, if released, is expected to be homebound on the day of the election and unable to travel to the polling place, shall be entitled to personal delivery of a ballot.
Election Day Voting
Registered voters can only vote in their home precinct on Election Day.
Residents who are not registered to vote may register and cast a ballot on Election Day thanks to same-day registration and voting. Those who wish to register on Election Day must present two qualifying forms of ID.
You may verify your home precinct by contacting the Office of Village Clerk Kristy Merrill or through your election authority:
