Register to vote or check your voter registration

Register to vote on the Illinois State Board of Elections website or use Indivisible Illinois TurboVote and we will send you important updates and reminders.

Did you recently move? Confirm your voter registration and determine your city/county of residence at the Illinois State Board of Elections website.

Make a plan to vote

Ensuring your right to vote can take a bit of work…especially this year! 

Use the timeline below to make a plan to vote and be prepared in case something goes awry. It only takes a few minutes and will ensure that your vote counts.

1. Register to Vote / Confirm Your Registration

Risk Level: None

  • Each year, an estimated 30+ million Americans move. Whether you have moved across the country or down the street, be sure to update your voter registration TODAY!
  • If your name/signature have changed since you registered to vote you will also need to update your registration.
  • Confirm your voter registration or register to vote at the Illinois State Board of Elections website.

2. Apply for Your Mail-In Ballot / Check Your Ballot Status

Risk Level: None

  • Ballot applications were sent to many registered voters via USPS at the beginning of August and reminders were sent on September 15. Many people who already submitted their ballot applications were accidentally sent reminders. Your application should be fine but check with your election office to be certain. Chicago residents and many others can check their ballot status online (links can be found by clicking on your jurisdiction below).
  • Registered voters who have not yet submitted absentee ballot applications should do so now to avoid potential processing delays. (online where possible)*
  • Even those who intend to vote at the polls should consider requesting a mail-in ballot. The mail-in ballot can be traded-in for an in-person ballot if everything looks good, but it serves as a backup plan in case problems arise.
* Applying online is encouraged for residents in the Cities of Chicago, Bloomington, Galesburg, and Rockford or the Counties of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, Will, Edgar, Grundy, Kankakee, Livingston, Logan, Macoupin, Madison, Mason, McDonough, McLean, Moultrie, Peoria, Putnam, Sangamon, Shelby, St Clair, Tazewell, Union, Whiteside, Winnebago, and Woodford

3a. Cast Your Mail-In Vote: Starting September 24th

Risk Level: Low

  • Absentee ballots will be mailed to all voters who have submitted applications starting on September 24.
  • Review your absentee ballot and research the candidates, the statewide Fair Tax initiative and any local initiatives.
  • Return your absentee ballot postage free to a secure designated Ballot DROP BOX or your local election office if possible. Or use proper postage and return it early (before October 20) via USPS.

3b. Cast Your Early Vote: Starting October 20th or sooner

Risk Level: Medium

  • Early Voting begins as early as September 24 in some areas and will be in effect statewide by October 20. (exact dates vary by county)
  • Voters who have not applied for an absentee ballot by this time should take advantage of early voting.
  • Voters who need assistance and cannot vote absentee should call ahead and arrange for curbside voting, etc.
  • If you received an absentee ballot but prefer to vote in person, take the mail-in ballot with you to the polls so they can properly void it.

3c. Cast Your Election Day Vote: November 3rd

Risk Level: High

  • Final day to vote.
  • Return your absentee ballot today! Drop off at the election office or postmark and send via USPS where allowed.
  • If you received an absentee ballot but prefer to vote in person, take the mail-in ballot with you to the polls so they can properly void it.
  • If you lost your absentee ballot, vote in person. If necessary, request a provisional ballot.

Request your mail-in ballot

All Illinois residents can apply now to have a mail in ballot sent to your home or another address of your choosing: college dorm, temporary housing, P.O. Box, etc.

Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to frequently asked questions in any of the following categories:

How to Vote by Mail

Am I eligible to vote by mail?

All registered Illinois voters are eligible to vote by mail. Double check your voter registration online with the State Board of Elections.

Will a ballot automatically be mailed to me?

No. You need to apply to vote by mail. You can apply for a ballot directly from your election authority:

Can I apply online?

Online Applications are encouraged for residents in the Cities of Chicago, Bloomington, Galesburg, and Rockford or the Counties of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, Will, Edgar, Grundy, Kankakee, Livingston, Logan, Macoupin, Madison, Mason, McDonough, McLean, Moultrie, Peoria, Putnam, Sangamon, Shelby, St Clair, Tazewell, Union, Whiteside, Winnebago, and Woodford.  

Is an absentee ballot different from vote by mail?

No, absentee and mail-in ballots are the same in Illinois. Only active duty military and their families need to fill out a separate ballot application

Do I have to show up in person somewhere before I’m allowed to vote by mail?

No.

Will I receive my ballot in time?

Apply for your ballot now to make sure it has enough time to arrive in the mail.

For voters who return their applications early, ballots will be mailed out starting on September 24, 2020, and the voter should receive them no later than October 5, 2020. 

For applications received after voting by mail has started on September 24, 2020, the ballots will typically be mailed within two business days after the clerk’s office receives the application.

How early am I allowed to send my completed ballot back?

You may mail your completed ballot back any time after you have filled it out and signed it. Return your ballot as early as possible. If you are going to send your ballot via USPS, do it before October 20, to ensure plenty of time for delivery and processing.

Do I have to pay the postage to return my ballot?

Many jurisdictions provide secure designated drop boxes or allow ballots to be returned in person to the election office. If you return your ballot this way, no postage is required.

Some jurisdictions also provide for prepaid postage or direct USPS to return them regardless of postage. Please confirm this with your local election authority.

Adding additional postage will have no impact on delivery.

Can somebody else return my completed ballot to a dropbox or election authority on my behalf? 

A voter may authorize any person to return their ballot to the election authority, as long as the voter has signed the affidavit on the ballot envelope affirming that authorization was given to deliver the ballot.

Do I receive a confirmation after election officials get my ballot? How do I know it went where it needed to go?

Some jurisdictions offer website tracking or send email confirmations when ballots are returned. Check with your election authority.

Check if your election authority has a dropbox, which allows you to hand deliver your ballot and receive confirmation immediately. 

If I request a mail-in ballot, can I still vote in person on Election Day?

If you change your mind and want to vote in person, bring your incomplete ballot to your polling place and give it to the Election Judge. You can then vote on a regular ballot. 

If you lost your mail ballot or never received it, contact your election authority to report it right away. If necessary, cast a provisional ballot at your regular polling location on election day. 

Frequent Vote By Mail Concerns

Is our mail system secure? Will USPS be able to handle all of the mail in ballots? 

To accommodate mailing times, make a plan, request your ballot early, and return your ballot at least 2 weeks before the election.

Check if your election authority has a dropbox, which is a secure place to return your ballot without putting it in the mail. 

Is my vote really being counted if I vote by mail?

Yes. Returning your ballot early is helpful because it gives election authorities time to process ballots and resolve any problems that would prevent your vote from being counted. By law election authorities must begin signature verification within 2 days of receipt.

Absentee ballots cannot legally be counted until after 7pm on Election Day. However, highly populated jurisdictions like Chicago and Cook County have counting machines and should be able to count all processed ballots relatively quickly.

If you are concerned about your ballot being counted, return your ballot 2 weeks before Election Day.

How are votes counted and tabulated? 

There are some small jurisdictions without scanning machines that do not use the process described below, but for the rest data is ultimately collected and stored on a memory chip in a scanner regardless of the specific voting method. As such, the voting method is far less important than making sure the ballot is filled out correctly and submitted in a timely fashion.

Most election day voters will cast their votes on a paper ballot, which is then fed into a scanner, or will input their data directly into touch-screen ballot marking devices, which create paper ballots that are immediately scanned. In highly populated areas, like Chicago and Cook County, all early voting is done via these touch-screen devices. Most mail-in ballots are also fed into a scanner after they have been received and verified. With the new equipment in Chicago and Cook County, not only is a running total accumulated, but a data record about each ballot is created, and it includes a picture of the ballot.

Specific Scenarios:

Early Voting: Monday night after early voting ends, the scanners and the ballots are taken to the vote counting center.  The ballots are stored securely.  On Tuesday, the chips are extracted from all of the scanners and one at a time are inserted into a computer to read and accumulate the totals from each early voting site.

Mail-in Ballots: As mail-in ballots continue to be returned, they are verified by three election judges, and then scanned using a scanner at the vote counting center.  That process continues, with the mail-in ballot data accumulating on the memory chip in the scanner, until polls close on election night.

Election Day: For votes cast on election day, the scanners in each polling place output paper totals for every race once the polls have closed. These are the preliminary totals that election judges must sign off on and report back to the election office. In some jurisdictions, the election day scanners can be connected via a cellular connection to send a one-way, handshake-encrypted transmission for the sole purpose of providing preliminary results as quickly as possible on election night. There is no Internet connectivity on either end.

The net result is that the unofficial election day totals, early vote totals, and all mail-in vote totals (that have been received and processed by election day) will be tabulated and reported on election night in most parts of the state. Official vote totals, mail-in ballots received/processed after election day, and provisional ballots will be processed over the next several days as needed until the winners can be determined.

So, it really doesn’t matter whether you vote in-person on election day, early vote, or mail-in your vote. The key is to make sure your vote is returned prior to election day and thereby reduce the number of outstanding votes that may delay the final outcome determination.

Does voting by mail increase vote fraud? 

No. In a recent report titled “The False Narrative of Vote-by-Mail Fraud,” the well-respected Brennan Center for Justice rebutted claims that mail voting is subject to abuse. “Despite [the] dramatic increase in mail voting over time, fraud rates remain infinitesimally small. None of the five states that hold their elections primarily by mail has had any voter fraud scandals since making that change.” The New York Times editorial board said “states that use vote-by-mail have encountered essentially zero fraud.”

The Brennan Center report suggested seven tools to guard against mail vote fraud. Illinois already utilizes several of those tools including verifying the voter’s signatures, bar-coding ballots, tracing mail ballots through email, and harsh penalties for vote fraud. Several others can and should be adopted.

Virtually all the opposition to increased mail voting comes from the right-wing Heritage Foundation and President Trump. FactCheck.org looked at Trump’s claims and found them false:

“There is no evidence to back up Trump’s blanket claim that ‘mailed ballots are corrupt.’ Voting experts say the president is exaggerating when he says mail ballots are ‘fraudulent in many cases.’”

The Heritage Foundation’s database shows 16 convictions for mail ballot fraud in Illinois over a 14-year period, an average of about one per year.
