On Wednesday, Sept. 2, the DuPage County Clerk Election Division announced that special assistance in voter registration is available to the elderly and voters with disabilities through the Division’s office. The Division can assist in the arrangement of voter registration appointments with deputy registrars for the upcoming General Election on Tuesday, Nov. 3.

All eligible registered voters, including those who are physically unable to get to their polling place, are entitled to receive a ballot by mail or in person.  An individual may request a ballot to vote by mail up through Oct. 29, 2020.  An individual may vote early at the Election Division office, beginning Sept. 24, 2020, through Nov. 2, 2020, or early vote in person at one of the County’s Early Voting sites, starting Oct. 19, 2020, through Monday, Nov. 2, 2020.

Polling locations during Early Voting and on Election Day will be equipped with touch-screen voting machines to enable those who are blind, visually impaired or have limited dexterity to vote privately without assistance.

Additionally, a voter may request assistance with marking their ballot.  At the polling place on Election Day assistance may be given by Judges of Election (one from each political party), a friend or a relative.  Assistance with marking the ballot will also be at Early Voting sites.

For additional information, contact the Election Division office at (630) 407-5600, the TDD number at (630) 407-5631, or visit dupageco.org/election/.
