The Governor recently signed into law a pathway to make it easier for Illinoisans to vote by mail. Learn how to vote by mail below.
Can I vote by mail?
Yes, any registered voter in Illinois can vote by mail – however you must apply to receive your mail in ballot.
How do I apply?
If you voted in any election since 2018 you will automatically receive an application to vote by mail.
Additionally, anyone who has updated their registration or registered to vote since the 2020 Primary on March 17th 2020 will also receive an application.
If you don’t fall into either of these categories you will need to visit https://www.elections.il.gov/ElectionOperations/VotingByMail.aspx to apply between October 5th and 29th.
