Voter registration closes 28 days prior to each election and
reopens two days after an election.
Registered voters in DuPage County may vote "early"
at any DuPage County Early Voting center conveniently located throughout
the county. Unlike absentee voting, an early voter
is not required to state a reason for voting early.
A registered voter may drop by an Early Voting site and present a valid government issued photo ID. If you registered by mail and did not send a copy of your identifications, you may have to show two forms of identification, one with your address on it. Once the voter's registration status is verified, the voter may cast a ballot on an ATM-like touch screen device. The vote will be tabulated on Election Day.
NOTE: Once an early vote is cast, the vote is final. The database is updated and the voter may not go to the polling place on Election Day to change a vote.
To access the link to other Early Voting sites go to the DuPage Election Commission website by clicking here.
A DuPage County registered voter who expects to be
absent from the county on Election Day, may vote absentee prior
to Election Day, either "by mail" or "in-person." Absentee voting
starts approximately 40 days prior to an election.
The last day to mail a ballot to a voter is the Thursday (5 days) prior to the election. You may complete an application, which you may access here (https://www.dupageco.org/Election/VoteByMail/), and return it in person the Election Commission and vote at that time.
For more information on voting absentee, including absentee voting for registered voters who are admitted to Hospitals, Nursing Homes or Rehabilitation Centers (within 14 days of Election), U.S. Service and Citizens Overseas, Permanently Disabled, or in Healthcare Facilities,
go to the Absentee Voting Procedures page on the DuPage
County Election Commission website.
"Grace Period" Registration and Voting
Illinois law provides individuals who were unable to register
to vote or change their address prior to the traditional deadline
(28 days prior to an election) a "grace period" to register and vote. The "grace period" is from the 27th day until the day before an election. Grace Period Registration can be done in the
office of the DuPage Election Commission, 421 North County Farm Road,
Wheaton, Illinois. "Grace Period" locations extend to the Early Voting locations throughout DuPage County beginning 15 days prior until the day before an election. For Early Voting locations and hours, click here (https://www.dupageco.org/Election/Voting/EarlyVoting/).
A DuPage citizen may register to vote at the DuPage Election Commission during "Grace Period" Registration and Voting. Again, be prepared to vote at the same time!
