Local Elections are just as important as presidential and congressional elections. Village mayors and commissioners, library and park district officials determine service where you live. Decisions are made about how to spend your tax dollars.
Before an election, find your polling place, information about the next election, information about voter registration, polling places and candidates at The DuPage Election Commission:
To vote, you must -
1, Be at least 18 years old on Election Day
2. Be a US citizen
3. Have lived in your election precinct for at least 30 days prior to Election Day
4. Not currently in jail after felony conviction
5. Not claim the right to vote anywhere else
Early Voting is a period of time before local and National elections that allows you to vote. During early voting, you must vote in person and you are never required to give a reason why you're voting early. On the DuPage County Election Commission website, find locations for early voting.
