There are many voting options for the upcoming March 2016 election. A description of the options may be found below;
Register to Vote
If you are not registered to vote, you can register to vote in person at Highwood City Hall. A list of additional voter registration locations may found on the Lake County Clerk’s website.
Not Sure if You’re Registered?
Go to the “Voter Power” page of the Lake County Clerk’s website to check your voter registration status.
Lake County registered voters many elect to vote early beginning 15 days prior to the traditional Election Day. Early voting ends the Saturday before Election Day. Early voting sites will be posted 40 days prior to the Election Day.
Voting By Mail
Lake County registered voters can also vote by mail. Voters can submit an online request for a ballot or mail in an application for a ballot, prior to Election Day. For additional information, visit the “Voting by Mail” page of the Lake County Clerk’s website.
Where do I vote?
Your voting site is determined by your precinct number and is listed on your Certificate of Voter's Registration Card. All voting sites are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day and are handicap accessible.
Don't have a Voter Registration card? Go to the “Voter Power” page of the Lake County Clerk’s website to find your voting site and print your Certificate of Registration.
Handicapped or elderly voters who are physically unable to enter the voting site may request voting assistance outside the room for voting, usually at curbside in a car. These voters should notify the Lake County Clerk’s office, at least one day in advance of Election Day, of this request by calling 847-377-2406.
A person not verified as registered on Election Day may vote a provisional ballot. The Clerk’s Office works with state agencies (Secretary of State’s DMV, State Board of Elections, etc.) and determines if a provisional ballot is:
1. Valid and cast after Election Day.
2. Invalid and not cast after Election Day.
You have 7 days after Election Day to provide documents supporting your claim of registration. Deliver this information to the Lake County Clerk’s Office, 18 N. County Street, Room 101, Waukegan. Hand deliveries should be directed to Debra Nieto at 847.377.2310.
