If you are unable to vote on Election Day or just want to skip the lines, vote early. Find your early voting location by clicking here. Early voting ballots are final. Registration services are available at every early voting site.
All registered voters in Elmhurst are eligible to vote by mail. Download the application here. Once a mail ballot has been returned to the Election Division, it cannot be retrieved or withdrawn. Ballots must be postmarked by Election Day.
Verify your voting location. The location of your polling place may have changed since you last checked. Polling place hours are 6:00 AM to 7:00 PM. No ID is required for voting in your home precinct on Election Day—unless you’re voting for the first time and have registered by mail without verification.
Even if you think you’re a registered voter, it’s quick and easy to confirm by checking here. If you aren't registered, click here.
Voters will vote for a candidate for president and other national, state, and county positions. Voters must declare a party in order to vote in this election.
Use the nonpartisan Illinois Voter Guide to find your ballot, learn about candidates, opt-in for election reminders, locate your polling place, and save and print your ballot to take with you to the polls!
The League of Women Voters does not endorse candidates but does provide information on all candidates in its Illinois Voters Guide.
