What is Early Voting?

Developed in response to the Federal Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA), the Early Voting initiative was passed by the Illinois legislature in August of 2005. It gives registered voters the opportunity to cast their ballot during an 18-day window before the official Election Day. It was first effective in DuPage County with the March 21, 2006, General Primary.

How does Early Voting work?

The registered voter drops by an Early Voting site (see list of Early Voting sites) and presents a valid government-issued photo ID card. Election workers then verify the voterís registration status through a central database at the DuPage County Election Commission. Once the voter has been validated, the database is updated to reflect it, which prevents the voter from voting at another location. Eligible voters are directed to an ATM-like device where they can cast their vote using a touchscreen. The actual vote will be tabulated once the polls close on Election Day.

Will the program be available for other DuPage County elections?

Early Voting is mandated for all future elections in DuPage County.

Where can I get more information about the program?

Voters interested in Early Voting can call the DuPage County Election Commission at 630-407-5600 or visit their website https://www.dupageco.org/earlyvoting/ for a complete list of early voting locations and updates on the Early Voting initiative.
