NOBLE VOTES

#NobleVotes2022

Noble is committed to partnering with our communities to make sure we are all prepared to vote, so that we can all let our voices be heard on election day, November 8th. Below is a three step guide to help you prepare to vote.

Register to Vote

Step 1: Register to Vote

The deadline to register online using a valid state ID or last 4 digits of your social security number for the 2022 Primary Election is October 12. On October 12, the “grace period” registration and voting begins. Between October 12 and October 23, you can still register to vote online, but you will need to provide either a driver’s license number or state ID number AND the last four digits of your Social Security number.

In Illinois, you can still register to vote in person at an early polling location until September 29 through November 8 at your assigned polling place or a super site. You can see Early Voting Places here.

Be sure to take your ID and a piece of mail with your address along with you if you register in person. Check out the Chicago Elections website for a list of acceptable forms of ID and polling places.

If you prefer to register to vote by mail, fill out this form. The deadline to mail in this form is Tuesday October 11, 2022.

Step 2: Create a voter plan

How will you vote in this election? Because of the pandemic, making a plan for how you’ll cast your ballot is essential. You have two options on how to vote in this election: Vote by Mail and Vote In-Person

Vote by Mail

You may use this page to apply for a Vote by Mail ballot through 5:00pm on Thursday November 3, 2022. Election officials will begin mailing ballots to voters by September 29th, 2022 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.

Returning Your Vote By Mail Ballot

  • Return By Mail: must be postmarked before or on Election Day, November 8, 2022. It is recommended to mail your ballot at least two weeks in advance to ensure proper delivery.
  • Drop-Off at Dropbox Location
  • Drop-Off at Voting Center

Vote In-Person

Safe and accessible in-person voting options are available.

  • Early Voting Locations: Locations and schedules for Early Voting ahead of the June 28, 2022 Primary will be provided on this page by late May 2022. They will be available here.
  • Election Day Polling Locations: To verify your polling location, view here.
