Voting Before Election Day

Voting Before Election Day
In Illinois, a voter who meets certain criteria may cast an early ballot in person (at the office of the election authority, select sites, or at a health care facility) or a vote by mail ballot.

If you have questions about voting by mail see the State Board of Election's Voting by Mail Pamphlet.

Eligible voters may optionally participate in early voting.

Early voting locations are listed by jurisdiction on this website.

Voters who missed the deadline to register or transfer their registration due to a move may cast grace period ballots at the office of the election authority.

Military or overseas voters should goto: The MOVE website. A Military or overseas voter may also request a Ballot using the federal postcard, or by contacting the election authority for their Illinois address or asking a parent, sibling or spouse to do so. Additional information on overseas and military voting is available from the federal voting assistance program.
