The April 2 Consolidated Election is coming!
And the Kane County Clerk’s Office is doing all it can to promote voting by mail.
To request an application for a
#VoteByMail ballot to vote from home at your convenience, you can download an application at this website page, call 630-232-5990, or visit the Kane County Clerk’s Office in Building B of the Kane County Government Center, 719 S. Batavia Ave., Geneva or the Aurora satellite office at 5 E. Downer Place, Suite F.
Who Is Qualified To Vote By Mail?
Any qualified elector of the state of Illinois who is properly registered to vote may apply for a vote by mail ballot.
In addition, the following unregistered voters are eligible to vote by mail ballot:
- Members of the Armed Forces or Merchant Marine and their spouses and dependents whether serving in the United States or abroad;
- U.S. citizens and their spouses or dependents, whose permanent residence is in Kane County but who will be temporarily residing abroad on election day;
- U.S. citizens (not their spouses or dependents) who maintained a residence in Kane County immediately prior to their departure from the United States.
How to Obtain a Vote by Mail Ballot
You may request a vote by mail ballot to be mailed to you. The last day we can mail you a ballot is five days prior to the election. There are two options to request a vote by mail:
- Print out and complete an application to vote and then mail the completed form to Kane County Clerk, 719 S. Batavia Ave., Building B, Geneva, IL 60134.
- Call the office at 630-232-5990. The Kane County Elections Authority began accepting the completed application on Jan. 2, 2019.
The ballot needs to be postmarked by election day and must be in the Kane County Clerk’s Office within two weeks after the election.
Please note that if you will be out of the country for the election, you must complete and return an FPCA form.
NOTE: ELECTION MAIL CANNOT BE FORWARDED
Persons who have registered by mail without providing identification and will be voting for the first time are not eligible to vote early by mail. But they may vote early.
You may vote early at the County Clerk’s office ONLY beginning 40 days prior to an election until the day before the election. If you are unable to come to our office to vote and would rather not vote by mail, you may vote early at locations spread throughout the county.
