early voting

Pick a site - Any site - VOTE EARLY

The law now allows any person to vote early during the 22nd through the 5th day preceding an election. Any voter may cast a ballot during this period at any of the Early Voting sites offered - regardless of the ward in which they live.

Unlike voting absentee, you DO NOT need an excuse or reason to utilize Early Voting. However, those who vote during early voting cannot vote again on Election Day. A list of all early voters will be provided to the judges of election prior to the opening of the polls.

For the 12 wards with Aldermanic run-offs, the Chicago Election Board has established an Early Voting site in each ward, plus another at the Election Board offices, 69 W. Washington St., Lower Level.

Early Voting will begin March 26 (today) and end April 12, 2007 for the Supplementary Aldermanic Election.

March 26-April 12, 2007
Monday-Saturday: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Sundays: 9 a.m. to noon


VOTERS IN WARDS WITH ALDERMANIC RUN-OFFS MAY USE ANY OF THESE EARLY VOTING LOCATIONS BETWEEN MARCH 26 AND APRIL 12:

2nd Ward - Mabel Manning Library, 6 S. Hoyne Ave.
3rd Ward - Chicago Bee Library, 3647 S. State St.
15th Ward - West Englewood Library, 1745 W. 63rd St.

REMEMBER: If you are registered to vote in one of these wards, you may use ANY of the sites above during Early Voting. On Election Day, voters who did not use Early Voting may cast ballots only at their assigned polling place.

Each early-voting site is equipped with touch-screen stations. The touch-screen stations are loaded with every type of ballot.

Pollwatchers are allowed to monitor early voting.

Early voting ballots will not be tabulated until the close of the polls on Election Day (April 17).

This information comes from the Board of Election Commissioners site.
