The Lake County Clerk’s office is most grateful to the Lake County North Shore Health Center and West Deerfield Township for their long partnerships in facilitating early voting at their offices. New state laws continue to increase requirements and associated costs for voting. In an effort to minimize the financial burden to taxpayers, a number of early voting sites have been combined and relocated to better serve with fewer sites.
Beginning with the March 2014 primary, early voters in Moraine and West Deerfield Townships will be served at the Highland Park Police Station Community Room, 1677 Old Deerfield Rd., Highland Park. Early voting sites are open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. starting Monday, March 3 until Saturday, March 15.
The convenient in-person early voting option is available to all registered voters. State law requires early voters to present a current, government-issued photo ID before receiving a ballot.
Any voter can request a ballot by mail online without signing a separate paper ballot request at www.LakeVoterPower.info or may complete a printable form online to sign and mail to Lake County Clerk, 18 North County St., Rm. 101, Waukegan, IL 60085. For more information, call 847/377-2406.
