Voting Information for Election Day
Dear Neighbors,

Early voting at the Lincoln Park Library has just closed. However, you can still vote at the six "Super Site" locations until 7 p.m. this evening.

Here are the three Super Sites that have relatively light traffic right now

NEW LOOP SUPER SITE at Clark & Lake - 191 N Clark    

SUPER SITE at King Community Ctr. -  4314 S Cottage Grove 

SUPER SITE at W. Side Learning Ctr   4624 W Madison 

For a full list of Super Sites (that close at 7:00 p.m.)
please click here.

Registration services are available at every Early Voting site. NOTE: Any voter who needs to register for the first time or file an address update or a name change  must show two forms of ID , one of which shows the voter's current address.
ELECTION DAY TOMORROW

Election Day Polling Places will open at 6 a.m.

Thanks to a record turn-out of early voters and vote-by-mail, we do not expect long lines at most polling places on Tuesday, so voters can more readily observe the practice of social distancing while in the polling place. Also, as a precaution you can expect to see many election workers wearing gloves and wiping down equipment with regularity. 

It is expected that there may be some inconveniences on Election Day, as some polling locations were just relocated and some election judges have decided not to serve.

BEFORE you go vote on Tuesday, March 17th, please check to see if your polling location has been relocated . The updated list of 43rd Ward polling locations   live on my website here . You can also look up your polling place location online.

If you can, remember the best times to vote is in the middle of day rather then during the morning or evening rush hour.

Some polling places have changed at the last minute. Before you go to the polls, go to ChicagoElections.com . Feel free to call my office at 773-348-9500 and check before you head to the polls. If you need a ride to the polls, call my office at 773-348-9500 and we will arrange a ride for you.
Volunteer: Be a Replacement Election Judge

If you are a healthy and capable voter and find your precinct to be under-staffed and over-burdened, you are WELCOME and ENCOURAGED to offer to be sworn in as a Substitute Judge to help the election run smoothly in that precinct. Those who are sworn in and serve Election Day will be compensated on a pro-rated basis ($170 for the full day of 5 am thru after polls closed) based on the number of hours that they serve.

Judges will be following very enhanced cleanliness and disinfection protocols at the polls to protect the election judges. If you are interested,
 
  • Study the Election Judge handbook and watch the training videos that the Chicago Election Board is providing. The handbook can be found at: https://chicagoelections.gov/en/serving-as-a-judge-of-election.html. Instructional videos will be available at this site beginning late Friday.
  • Check in voters and issue ballots throughout the day until polls close at 7:00 p.m.
  • Remain until approximately 7:30 p.m. or later until paperwork is complete.
 
Please note: Replacement Election Judges, also called “Standby Judges”, do NOT have any designated party affiliation!
 
If you would like to volunteer as a replacement judge on call to fill in where needed, Please email me as soon as possible.
 
Thank you in advance for your service and dedication to the vital democracy in Chicago.
Voting is our most important duty as citizens of this republic. Fear is always the tool used to keep people from voting. Vote like your life depends on it - it does.
