Make Sure Your Absentee Counts!

Our goal is for zero absentee ballots to be rejected at the polls.

The Village Clerk’s Office strongly encourages absentee voters to take the following steps to make sure their ballot is counted:

  • Read the instructions that you receive with your absentee ballot.

  • Sign the certificate envelope on the line marked “Signature of Voter.”

  • Have your witness sign the certificate envelope on the line marked “Signature of Witness.”  It is perfectly acceptable if your witness is your spouse or significant other.

  • Have your witness write their address underneath the witness signature (street number, street name, municipality, state, zip code).

  • Seal the envelope - do not use tape or saliva to seal. 

  • Mail your absentee ballot back to the Clerk’s Office as early as possible. The ballot must be to your polling place by 8:00pm on Election Day.

  • If you have moved, register to vote at your new address. Crossing out the address on your absentee label and writing in your new address does not update your voter registration.

  • Vote absentee in the Clerk’s Office at Village Hall.

Absentee ballots are rejected for the following reasons:

  • Voter has not signed absentee certificate envelope.

  • Voter has not had a witness sign the absentee certificate envelope.

  • Witness did not write address on absentee certificate envelope (street number, street name, municipality).

  • Ballot has not been received by Election Day.

  • Voter has not registered to vote at their current address.

  • Voter has not properly sealed the absentee certificate envelope.

  • Voter dies before Election Day.
