According to a release from DuPage County, voters may now apply for Vote by Mail ballots for the Nov. 3, 2020 General Election. In compliance with new state election law in response to COVID-19, the DuPage County Clerk Election Division has increased the ballot application period by nearly seven weeks.

Registered voters are encouraged to securely apply online for Vote by Mail ballots at

All registered voters in DuPage County who do not apply for a ballot over the website will be mailed a Vote by Mail application by Saturday, Aug. 1.

PLEASE NOTE: Mailing of the ballots to voters will not begin until Sept. 24, 2020. It may take four to five business days to receive a ballot after that date.

As another option to voting by mail, registered voters may choose instead to cast their ballot during Early Voting or at Election Day polling places.

Last month, the Illinois General Assembly passed SB 1863 expanding Vote by Mail as a voting method during the ongoing pandemic. On Tuesday, June 16, Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed the bill into law to ensure safe and active participation in the 2020 General Election.

Due to COVID-19, all 2020 General Election voters are encouraged to cast a ballot prior to Election Day, either by mail or during early voting. An application is available from your local election authority (see above) or visit
