The state of Illinois is already seeing a huge influx of early voting at the polls. More than half a million people have already voted in the November election and a good portion of that is from mail-in ballots. State Board of Elections Spokesperson Matt Dietrich says voters need to return their mail-in ballot as soon as possible.
Dietrich says that getting your votes in early can assure that your vote will be counted on Election Night and not afterward.
The last day to request a mail-in ballot is October 29th. For more information, visit elections.il.gov.
