Any qualified elector who is unable or unwilling to appear at the polling place on Election Day may request to vote an absentee ballot. A qualified elector is any U.S. citizen, who will be 18 years of age or older on election day, who has resided in the ward of the municipality where he or she wishes to vote for at least 28 consecutive days before the election. The elector must also be registered in order to receive an absentee ballot.
Voting Absentee By Mail
You may request a ballot be sent to you one of three ways:
Voters are able to request ballots be mailed to them up to 5:00 pm on the 5th day before the election. For the upcoming election, that is Thursday, November 3, 2022.
Once you have received and completed your ballot, do not wait to return it. You are able to send it back right after you are done voting. You may bring ONLY YOUR OWN ballot to the Clerk's office to return it or you can send it in the mail. On Election Day, you may take your completed absentee ballot to the Central Count location, Village Hall Court Room before 8:00 pm.
In-Person Absentee Voting
Voters may also vote in-person prior to Election Day at Village Hall. In-person absentee voting is held the two weeks prior to every election, excluding weekends. Voting hours are 8:00 am to 4:30 pm except the last day, when voting goes until 5:00 pm. For the upcoming election, in-person absentee voting will begin on Tuesday, October 25 and continue through Friday, November 4, 2022.
In-person absentee voting is done at the Village Hall, 3930 N Murray Avenue. A parking lot and ADA/elevator access are located on the East side of Village Hall. Voter Photo ID is required. Please visit the Voter Photo ID page for more information.
