Vote By Mail (VBM)
Why Vote By Mail?
Before COVID19, Vote By Mail (VBM) was already available to all Illinois Residents. VBM has a proven track record and process. Both Republican and Democratic Election Judges are ALWAYS present during all phases of processing Vote by Mail Ballots (Postmark Check, Signature Check, Feeding the Ballot through the Machine, etc…). Vote By Mail provides a paper trail that can always be verified/audited. Vote By Mail is an excellent option to keep both your health and vote safe. You Can Apply to Vote By Mail Today.
Vote By Mail – Postage Not Required
In DuPage County, you do NOT need to put postage (aka stamps) on either your Vote By Mail Application (if you apply via the paper version mailed to you) or your Vote By Mail Ballot. You can just drop in your mailbox without a stamp.

WARNING: Only fill out a Vote By Mail Application if you are going to vote via your VBM Ballot (if you fill out the application to Vote By Mail and you show up for early voting or voting on election day, you will be given a provisional ballot, unless you bring your VBM Ballot and Return Envelope with you, it’s best to avoid this situation). Early Voting and Election Day voting will still be available.
