Due to COVID-19, all 2020 General Election voters are encouraged in Public Act 101-0642 to cast a ballot prior to Election Day, either by mail or during early voting.  As part of this law, we are REQUIRED to send "vote by mail applications" to anyone whom voted in November 2018, April 2019, or March 2020, as well as those new registrations or changes made after Primary 2020 Election.  

Polling Places will be open on Election day for those whom want to vote in person, but voters will be required to abide by CDC recommendations.  (Right now that means: voters would be required to wear a mask, abide by social distancing, and are encouraged to bring their own pen.  Hopefully this will change prior to November.)  For list of polling places click here.

The GENERAL ELECTION will be held on November 3, 2020.  Publication Ballot click here
