RETURN OF VOTE BY MAIL BALLOTS

COUNTY CLERK STALEY FERRY: DON’T DELAY RETURN OF VOTE BY MAIL BALLOTS

JOLIET – Will County Clerk Lauren Staley Ferry encourages voters who have requested and received their Vote By Mail Ballot to fill them out and return them as soon as possible.

With only two weeks left until Election Day for the  April 6 Consolidated Election, the County Clerk urges voters not to delay completing their ballots and returning them.

Voters should seal their completed Vote By Mail Ballot inside the provided Ballot Envelope. They should then sign and date the Ballot Envelope and slip it inside the larger postage-paid return envelope for mailing to the Will County Clerk’s Office. Mailed envelopes must be received by Election Day or postmarked by Election Day for the ballots to be counted.

Voters also may deposit their sealed envelopes in the Vote By Mail Drop Box located outside the Will County Clerk’s Office at 302 N. Chicago St. in downtown Joliet. Or they can stop inside the office and deliver their envelopes personally to our friendly staff at the front counter.

As of the close of business Monday, 16,558 voters had requested Vote By Mail Ballots for the April 6 Consolidated Election and 4,639 have been returned to the Will County Clerk’s Office.

“I strongly encourage voters to return their Vote By Mail Ballots promptly to make their voices heard in this election,” County Clerk Staley Ferry said.
