Permanently Disabled Vote by Mail Program

If you are a registered voter who has a permanent disability or physical incapacity of such a nature as to make it improbable that you will be able to be present at the polls at any future election, you may enroll in the Permanently Disabled Vote by Mail Program.

An Application for Identification Card by an Elector Who is Permanently Disabled/Affidavit of Attending Physician form must be completed (also signed by the voter's doctor) and submitted to the Election Division in order to be enrolled in the program.

  •     Download the Application for Identification Card by an Elector Who is Permanently Disabled/Affidavit of Attending Physician form in English (PDF) / Spanish (PDF).

             ATTN: PERMANENTLY DISABLED VOTING DEPARTMENT
             PO BOX 1087
             WHEATON, IL 60187-1087 

Once enrolled in the program, the Election Division automatically sends an Application for Vote by Mail Ballot by an Elector who is Permanently Incapacitated form and ballot to the voter for every election held in the five-year period following enrollment in the program.
