As co-presidents of the League of Women Voters of the La Grange Area and under the auspices of the League of Women Voters of Illinois, we are writing to encourage all registered voters to request a vote by mail ballot for the Nov. 3 election.
Everyone who has voted in the past two years -- in the 2018 General Election, 2019 Consolidated Election or 2020 Primary Election -- will automatically receive an application for a vote by mail ballot in their mailbox for the 2020 General Election. But why wait? Get registered and apply to vote by mail today.
Go to the League of Women Voters of Illinois online tool, illinoisvoterguide.org, to find your appropriate local election authority where you can request a vote by mail ballot electronically, in most cases, or you can download an application and return it to the election authority by mail.
If you need to register to vote or change your address, the illinoisvoterguide.org can direct you to the online voter registration site. After registering, you can request a vote by mail ballot.
A voter should not have to choose between one's health and casting a ballot.
Once requested, ballots will be sent out starting Sept. 24, so expect yours in the mail at the end of September or beginning of October. Your vote is your voice. Let your voice be heard.
Ann Lee and Laurie Braun, co-presidents
