You Can Apply Now To Vote By Mail In November

If you're interested in voting by mail in the November election (something that's been available in Chicago for a long time), the Chicago Board of Elections is already taking applications:

"You may apply online now to Vote By Mail for the Nov. 3, 2020 Election.

When you apply online to Vote By Mail, the Election Board will send you emails:
  • When your ballot is mailed to you,
  • When the Election Board receives your Ballot Return Envelope, and
  • When your ballot has been processed and counted.

The Board will start mailing ballots in late September / early October 2020.  All Vote By Mail ballots come with postage-paid Ballot Return Envelopes.

New this fall: You may submit the Ballot Return Envelope in a secured drop box at any Chicago Early Voting location! 

You may also use standard US mail.  If you use standard US mail to send your Ballot Return envelope, you must get a postmark before or on Election Day, Nov. 3.
