The Cook County Clerk’s Office has received many inquiries requesting information on where Mail Ballots can be securely delivered directly to the CCCO, not using the United States Postal Service. To be prepared, the CCCO will have over 50 dropboxes around Cook County.
Mail Ballots will be mailed out to all Cook County Voters who apply to receive a mail ballot beginning September 24, 2020. There will be a postage-paid return envelope for voters who wish to mail back their ballot. Voters are urged to complete and mail their ballot back as early as possible once they receive it.
Secure dropboxes will be located at over 50 early voting sites spread throughout Cook County where voters can drop off their completed mail ballots from 8:30 AM to 7 PM Monday through Friday and 9 AM to 5 PM on weekends. Mail ballots will be collected on a daily basis and will be time stamped. Voters who applied for their mail ballot online will receive an email at the time their mail ballot is sent to them, as well as an email notifying them when the completed ballot has been received back from the voter. Wilmette’s dropbox will be located at Centennial Ice Rink.
Dropboxes for mail ballots will be available beginning October 9, 2020 at 69 West Washington St. in Chicago as well as the 5 Regional Courthouses in suburban Cook County located in Rolling Meadows, Skokie, Maywood, Bridgeview and Markham. Dropboxes will be available at the remaining Early Voting sites beginning October 19, 2020.
