3 Ways to Vote
You have three options for voting: vote by mail, vote in person at an early voting location, or vote in person at your normal polling location on election day.
However you plan to vote, make a voting plan in advance. Think about when and where you’ll do it, and about any arrangements you’ll need to make to get it done.
1. Vote by Mail
There are two steps to voting by mail:
- Submit a vote-by-mail application. This is how you notify election authorities that you want to vote by mail rather than in person this year.
Submit your ballot. Ballots must be postmarked by Election Day, but try to mail your ballot as early as possible after you receive it.
The Kane County Clerk website has additional information on the vote-by-mail process.
2. Early Voting
Early in-person voting typically begins several weeks before Election Day.
For more details, visit the Kane County Clerk’s early voting page.
3. Voting on Election Day
Your voter registration card should have the location of your polling place. You can look up your polling place online to verify the location and polling times.
