COUCH POTATO Voting ????
A large voter turnout is predicted for November's election, and this will result in long lines at the voting sites.  Please help us encourage Lake County citizens to choose to vote by mail - you know - like a couch potato. This option allows any registered voter to receive and mark a ballot from the comfort of his or her own sofa!

If you would like to register to vote in person - please come on in Avon Township!

Call Avon Township 847-546-1446 or
