Early Voting begins at DuPage Co. Fairgrounds on Sept. 24

DuPage County voters can cast their ballots in the 2020 Presidential Election beginning Thursday, Sept. 24, when the county’s Early Voting site opens at the DuPage County Fairgrounds. 

Doors to voting at the Fairgrounds will open at 8 a.m. Thursday – 40 days before the Nov. 3 Election.

Early Voting starting at this time, formerly called “In-Person Absentee”, at the Fairgrounds will be by paper ballot only.  Beginning on Monday, October 19, eighteen additional Early Voting sites offering touchscreen voting will be available throughout DuPage County.

This is the first time Early Voting is being offered at the Fairgrounds, 2015 Manchester Road in Wheaton, just off County Farm Road, east of the county’s Government Administration buildings. The Fairgrounds replaces the County Administration Building Early Voting site in order to accommodate more voters while adhering to coronavirus prevention measures. 

“I appreciate the continued support of the DuPage County Fairgrounds to help my office ensure that voters have a safe place to vote while practicing social distancing,” Kaczmarek said. 

In addition to social distancing, there will be personal protection supplies including hand sanitizer for voters and poll workers alike. 

Hours for Early Voting at the Fairgrounds are:

Weekdays:  8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (September 24 - October 16)

Saturdays:   9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (September 26 - October 17)

Weekdays:  8:30 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. (October 19 - November 2)

Weekends:  9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (October 24 - November 1)

Voters can find a complete guide to all Early Voting locations and dates, as well as information on voting by mail, at the Clerk’s website. 

“All the information you will need on the ways to vote in the Presidential Election can be found at www.dupageco.org/election/,” Kaczmarek said. “We also encourage everyone to follow us on Twitter (Twitter.com/DuPageCoClerk) and FaceBook (Facebook.com/DuPage-County-Clerk).”
