All registered voters in the state of Illinois will be mailed a Vote By Mail ballot to ensure a safe and accessible voting option during the COVID-19 pandemic. Election officials will begin mailing ballots to voters by May 19th and will include a ballot card, a return envelope, a list of Vote By Mail Drop Box locations, and an “I Voted” wrist band. When you mail your ballot package, you will receive an email with a tracking system to follow the ballot mailing to your address — and then track your Ballot.
Voters must sign the eligibility oath and date the Vote By Mail return envelope before submitting their ballot. Every signature is verified before the ballot is cleared for counting. If a signature is missing or if the signature does not match the one on file, the County will notify the impacted voter to allow the voter an opportunity to provide a valid signature.
