Get Out The Vote in 2022!

Have you made a plan to vote? November 8 will be one of the most important elections in Illinois in recent years, and we need our voices to be heard now more than ever. 

Make sure you’re prepared this election season by taking these 3 simple steps:

Check Your Status

Learn about the candidates and decide who you will vote for

How to Vote Safely in 2022

 If you’re voting by mail 

  1. Find your local election authority
  2. Download and fill out the vote by mail application found on their website
  3. Return the application to your local election authority.
  4. Ballots will begin to be delivered to homes by September 29th. Fill out your ballot from the comfort of your home. 
  5. Return your ballot. You can either mail it back or use one of your election authority's secure drop-off locations. You have until November 8th to do this!
  6. Sit back and relax. Your civic duty is done!

If you are planning to vote by mail, make sure to request your ballot early and return it as soon as possible


If you’re voting at your local polling place:

  • Know your voting plan before going to the polls.
    Doing your candidate research ahead of time will ensure that you can get in and out of your polling place as quickly as possible! Be prepared and download our list of endorsed candidates to bring with you.
  • Vote during non-peak hours.
    Mornings, lunch breaks, and evenings will likely be the busiest times at most polling places. When planning your trip to the polls, try to avoid these high-traffic times, if possible. 
  • Wear a face mask and bring your own hand sanitizer and pen.
  • Respect the social distancing markers at your polling location.

All freedoms are on the ballot in 2022

We can't afford to sit on the sidelines. Talk to your friends, family, and neigbors about the 2022 election and encourage them to vote.
