(KWQC) – Attorney General Lisa Madigan and the Illinois State Board of Elections have alerted voters throughout Illinois about the voting by mail process during this fall’s election due to recent complaints raised by confused and concerned voters.
Voters should be aware that third party organizations are allowed to send voters applications to receive a mail-in ballot, but voters should stay alert and monitor whether they then receive a ballot in the mail. Voters who applied for a vote-by-mail ballot but did not receive it or have not sent in a completed ballot retain the right to vote in person during the early voting period or on election day.
You can check the status of your ballot through your county authorities. A list of county election authorities can be found at www.elections.il.gov.
To find early voting locations, visit the Illinois Board of Elections website for a list of locations.
More information about the voting process and the status of your voter registration can be found on the Illinois Board of Elections website or through local county clerks’ offices.
