Steady Stream of Facts:
I have a document for last minute early voting information for suburban Cook County. and a link for Lake County. Could our callers use them for local elections? Here it is for whatever it’s worth. You can find wait times at early voting sites.
LAST MINUTE EARLY VOTING INFORMATION
EARLY VOTING IS OPEN NOW
ELECTION DAY IS NOVEMBER 3.
Bring ID and a mask.
Regular voter registration has closed. But, if you have not already registered to vote, you can still register during the grace period/voting at early voting sites. You must register to vote and vote at the same time. Bring 2 forms of ID, one with your current address. Neither has to be a photo ID.
If you are using a mail- in ballot, be sure to notice the small print shaded in blue on the outside of the return envelope, where you must write in how long you have lived at your current address. Follow all instructions carefully. There are instructions for what to do if someone besides the voter turns in the ballot.
Mail-in ballots may be turned in at early voting sites. These ballots are picked up by a security firm and delivered to the ballot processing center. If you decide not to use your mail ballot, bring it and the envelope to an early voting site and turn it in to the election judge. They will void it and let you vote in person. If you don’t have it, explain the situation to the judge.
Ballots mailed by US mail must be postmarked by Nov. 3; otherwise they will not be counted.
If you are still waiting to receive a mail ballot that you applied for, the Cook County Clerk’s office reports that there is a delay for people who applied by paper application and they are working to fill the requests.
Mail-in ballots cannot be tabulated until after the polls close on Nov. 3. Therefore, close races may take many days to be totaled, and winners announced.
