Although February 4, 2016 is the statutory start of “Early Voting” for the March 15, 2016, ballots WILL NOT be available on that date due to several pending petition objections at the state and local levels.

The Election Commission anticipates that ballots will be available on or about February 17th, by which time challenges to a candidate’s placement on the ballot should be determined and the official ballot and voting equipment prepared.

Should ballots be available prior to February 17th, it will be posted at In the interim, any voters who arrive at the Election Commission office will be provided with an application to Vote by Mail.

When Early Voting and Grace Period Registration does commence, it will be offered ONLY at the office of the DuPage County Election Commission, 421 N. County Farm Rd., Wheaton, from 8:00 am-4:30 pm Monday through Friday and Saturday, and from 9:00 am-1:00 pm through February 27, 2016.
