As Election Day nears, Kaczmarek notes those voters who have put off applying for a mail ballot should consider voting in-person during Early Voting or on Election Day. 

“Typically lines become longer at Early Voting closer to Election Day. If a voter intends to go to an Early Voting site, the sooner the better,” Kaczmarek said. 

Strict health protocols will be followed at each Early Voting site to protect voters and poll workers from COVID-19. They include: Extended hours so that crowds may be more spread out throughout the day; masks for poll workers, regular cleaning of equipment and touchscreens with sanitizing wipes, and signage reminding voters to keep six feet apart. In accordance with statewide COVID-19 prevention guidance, if a voter forgets their mask, they will be given a single-use mask from the Clerk’s Office. All Early Voting sites are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). 

Kaczmarek encourages anyone who is uncertain of their voter registration status, including those voters who may have moved or changed their name since the last time they voted, to confirm their registration and see their sample ballot at the Clerk’s website: https://www.dupageco.org/VoterLookup/

Due to COVID-19, all 2020 General Election voters are encouraged to cast a ballot prior to Election Day, either by mail or during early voting. Voting by mail is an easy option for voters and you can request a vote by mail ballot through email, mail, or in person. An application is available from your local election authority or at https://elections.il.gov/electionoperations/VotingByMail.aspx.
