Frequently Asked Questions:

Am I Already Registered?
Visit the DuPage County Election Commission website and go to Voter Lookup. Here you can enter your personal information to make sure you are registered to vote, find your polling place (i.e. where you go to vote) and get a sample ballot in order to view all the races on which you will be asked to vote.

What is the deadline for voter registration?
The registration deadline is generally 30 days prior to the election. For the next election, that should be February 20, 2018, but do confirm with the DuPage County Election Commission website.

Where in Glen Ellyn is early voting?
The DuPage County Election Commission has established the Glen Ellyn Civic Center as an early voting site. Early voting begins at this site generally about 2.5 weeks prior to the election. Visit here for more information on early voting sites in DuPage County. You can also go to the County courthouse complex in Wheaton to vote early.

When is Early Voting Available? 
Locations and hours for early voting are determined by each election authority.

Early voting timeline: 

  • First day - 40th day prior to an election
  • Last day - 1 day prior to an election

Beginning 15 days prior through the day before an election, several sites throughout DuPage County will offer early voting as well.  

Please Note: Once an early vote has been cast, the vote is final. The voter may not go to the polling place on Election Day to change a vote.

Watch the League's Facebook page (visible from our home page) for League Voter Registration activities where a League member can register you. Attend a League meeting, as many members are voter registrars and can register you right there. Ask a League member you know!

How do I know who to vote for?
To check out candidates, attend a candidate forum AND click one of these websites to learn more:


Note: League invites candidates to submit information to sites such as the ones above so that voters can learn more about them and compare their views to their opponents' views easily, but candidates do not always comply for reasons only they can answer. If you need to know what the candidate you are interested in stands for, visit their website(s). Note that League is a non-partisan organization that never supports or opposes any political candidate or party.
