DuPage County - Vote By Mail - 2020 General Election
With the close of one convention and the start of another one next week, I suppose it is time to remind anyone who is reading this blog post that, if they live in DuPage County, they should get on the stick and request their mail-in ballot. The county has made it pretty easy - just head here to the DuPage Election Authority's page where you fill out a form with your name, Date of Birth and SSN.
The County Clerk also sent out this mailer that explains what they have planned for this year - and included instructions on the application. But, she's also touting that - at some point later this year - you'll be able to 'track your vote-by-mail ballot', which is promising. I will admit that my disposition is to not really like or admire the government, but if they can make tracking my ballot as easy as I can track my order from DoorDash or Uber Eats, I'll be pretty impressed.
The last day to request a mail-in ballot in DuPage County is Thursday Oct, 29th - which seems cutting it awfully close to Election Day on Tuesday, November 3rd. But, why would you wait that long? Just put in your application today and get set up for when ballots will start to be mailed on September 24th.
