General Election

Tuesday, November 3, 2020
6:00 am-7:00 pm

When you vote in person, please wear a mask to protect yourself, fellow voters, and the Election Judges. Once you arrive, check in at the table with the Election Judges. They will ask for your name, possibly your date of birth, and have you sign on the signature pad. Once that signature has been verified to match the signature we have on record, you will be checked in and given the appropriate ballot.

If you are registered in the State of Illinois, find your polling location.
