Any registered suburban Cook County voter may apply to vote by mail. It is no longer necessary to provide a reason for requesting a mail ballot, according to a new Illinois law.
Voters who are physically unable to reach the polling place can register for the Disabled Voter Program. Those voters will automatically receive an application for a mail ballot before each election for the next five years.
Voters living overseas and military personnel can vote through the Military/Overseas Absentee Ballot Program.
Unless you require assistance, do not let anyone else mark your ballot.
Do not let anyone force or coerce you into voting for any candidate.
Do not let anyone, other than a close relative or authorized messenger, mail, deliver or handle your voted ballot.
Call (312) 603-0909 to tell us if anyone is violating these rules.
