Election Day is Tuesday, April 6, 2021. You may also vote early or cast your vote by mail before then.
Voters may request a mail-in ballot from the County Clerk’s Office that they can complete and return prior to the close of voting on April 6. There are two ways to request a mail-in ballot. The easiest way is to use the County Clerk’s online request form.
The other way is to download this form, and mail it back to the Clerk’s office.
Once the County Clerk receives your request, she will send you your ballot as early as February 25. Please keep in mind that the last day you may request a mail-in-ballot is Tuesday, March 29 and the last day the Clerk can send you a mail-in ballot is Thursday, April 1.
REMEMBER: You must return your ballot (or have it postmarked by) April 6 in order for your vote to count.
Beginning on February 25 and continuing through April 5, you may vote early at the County Clerk's Office, 421 N County Farm Rd in Wheaton.
On Monday, March 22, the Addison Township Offices at 401 N Addison Rd. in Addison will become an early vote center and remain open every day until April 5. While there are other early voting locations in the county, this is the permanent site most convenient to most Addison residents.
YES! We know that many people still enjoy going to the polls on Election Day to cast their ballots. If you are one of them, you may vote at your polling place from 6 AM until 7 PM.
Over the past few years, the number of polling places have decreased significantly and many locations have changed.
If you aren’t sure where your polling place is, the County Clerk's Voter Status Tool will tell you.
Yes, but the following voting methods aren’t available to everyone. If they apply to you, you may wish to consider them. The County Clerk’s Office has more information.

Any qualified voter who has been admitted to a hospital, nursing home or rehabilitation center due to an illness or physical injury not more than 14 days before an election is entitled to personal delivery of a Vote by Mail ballot in the hospital, nursing home or rehabilitation center.
An Application for Ballot for Qualified Voter Admitted to Hospital, Nursing Home or Rehabilitation Center Not More Than 14 Days Before an Election form must be completed by the voter and admitting physician, then delivered to the County Clerk's Election Division office by a relative of the voter or a registered voter of the same precinct as voter to receive a Vote by Mail ballot.
IF YOU QUALIFY FOR U.S. SERVICE AND CITIZENS OVERSEAS ABSENTEE VOTING
The Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) website provides information to U.S. citizens covered by the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA). U.S. Service and citizens of the United States temporarily residing outside the U.S. may submit a Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) to receive a Vote by Mail ballot.
The County Clerk recommends that U.S. Service and Citizens Overseas submit a FPCA annually in the month of January and whenever there is a mailing address change to insure proper mailing of ballots.
PLEASE NOTE: The FPCA is only for U.S. Service Members, their spouses and dependents and Citizens of the United States residing overseas.
IF YOU RESIDE AT A HEALTHCARE FACILITY
Election Judges conduct voting at licensed healthcare facilities on the Saturday before an election. To qualify to vote at that time residents must be registered to vote and submit a Vote by Mail ballot application by Friday the week before healthcare voting takes place.
