Start of Early Voting in DuPage, Illinois

Although February 8, 2018 is the statutory start of "Early Voting" for the March 20, 2018 General Primary Election, ballots WILL NOT be available on that date due to several court hearings at the state and local level.

The Election Commission anticipates that ballots will be available on or about February 12th, by which time challenges to a candidate's placement on the ballot should be determined and the official ballot and voting equipment prepared.

Should ballots be available prior to February 12th, we will update our website for more information at  In the interim, any voters who arrive at the Election Commission office will be provided with an application to Vote By Mail.

When Early Voting and Grace Period Registration does commence, it will be offered ONLY at the office of the DuPage County Election Commission, 421 N. County Farm Rd., Wheaton, from 8:00 am - 4:30 pm Monday through Friday, and Saturday, from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm through March 3, 2018.

Starting March 5, 2018, the Early Voting location at the County Complex (421 N. County Farm Rd., Wheaton) will move from Room 1-600 to the 2nd Floor Cafeteria, along with expanding to 10 additional sites throughout the County.
