Postage-Free Drop Boxes for Vote by Mail Ballots Open September 24

If you received a ballot by mail and do not want to return it through the U.S. Postal Service, take advantage of the many postage-free drop boxes around the County. Election judges will collect ballots daily and bring them to the Lake County Clerk’s office for processing. On November 3, all drop boxes will be locked at 7 PM.

Complete location list with dates, hours, and addresses.

Early Voting Drop Boxes

All seventeen Early Voting sites will have drop boxes INSIDE the voting sites while open. You will need to park your car and walk into the building.

Election Day Drop Boxes

Only two voting sites will offer INSIDE drop boxes on Election Day while the polls are open.

Additional Options for Returning Your Vote by Mail Ballot

By Mail

Your ballot must be postmarked no later than November 3, 2020 and received in the Lake County Clerk’s Office by November 17, 2020 at 5 PM.

Hand Deliver to Lake County Clerk’s Office

Please call 847-377-VOTE for office hours or appointment times. You may hand deliver your ballot to the Lake County Clerk’s office in Waukegan on or before 7 PM on Tuesday, November 3.
If you are returning someone else’s ballot to the Lake County Clerk’s office, the voter must complete the back side of the certification envelope giving you authorization. Before we can accept the voter’s ballot, you must present valid identification with the same name as the voter indicated.

Surrendering Your Ballot

If you received a ballot by mail and wish to vote in person, you may take your mailed ballot to the voting site (options below), surrender your ballot, and receive a new ballot to mark and deposit in the voting site’s ballot counter.

This option is available at any Early Voting site.

On Election Day, you may surrender your ballot at any of these locations:

  • Your assigned neighborhood voting site,
  • Lake County Fairgrounds, or
  • Lake County Main Courthouse Lobby.
