Ways to Vote

Early Voting

Early voting begins March 20 in all 50 wards and runs through election day April 4. Find your nearest site on this Google map of the 51 early voting sites that we made. You can vote at any early voting site, not just the one in your ward. You can get more information about early voting on the Chicago Board of Elections site.

Mail-In Ballots

Up until Thursday, March 30, you can request a Vote By Mail ballot that can be mailed in or securely dropped off at any voting site. Mail-in ballots are the most convenient way to cast your vote for Brandon Johnson and our endorsed candidates. You don’t have to wait in line, just sit at your own kitchen table and complete the ballot.
