Requesting Absentee Ballots By Mail - It's Not Too Early To Make Your Request For The November Election -
The deadline for registered voters to request an absentee ballot be mailed to you is at 5 p.m. the Thursday before the election. Using the MyVote website, look for the “Vote Absentee” button near the top of the page. There is a three-step process that starts with putting in your name and date of birth, followed by requesting your ballot. Photo ID is required at the time of the request. When you receive the ballot and have voted, insert the ballot in the return envelope provided. Please be sure a witness signs the absentee envelope and writes their address on the space provided. Without that information, the ballot will be rejected. You may mail the ballot back in the postage-paid envelope provided, you may deliver it to the Village Clerk at the Municipal Center, or drop it in the secure drop box located outside the entry door of the Municipal Center. All absentee ballots must be received by the Village Clerk no later than 8:00 p.m. on Election Day. Please visit the Election Information page on this website for complete information.
