EARLY VOTING 

Illinois voters can cast a ballot prior to Election Day without having to provide a reason or an excuse for wanting to vote early.

A major reason for the new law is to encourage greater participation in the election.

Approximately 35 other states allow some form of early voting, according to the Illinois State Board of Elections.

For the November 6, 2018, General Election, early voting will be conducted at the Henry County Courthouse, as a temporary site, in the office of Barbara M. Link, Henry County Election Authority.

Early voting begins on Thursday, September 27th, 2018, and ends on Monday November 5th, 2018. Hours for early voting are 8:00 A.M. – 4:30 P.M. Monday thru Friday.   The Henry County Courthouse will be closed on October 8, 2018 in observance of Columbus Day.  The County Clerk's Office will be open on the following Saturday's:  October 20, 2018, October 27, 2018, and November 3, 2018 from 8:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M.  The office will be closed on October 8, 2018 in observance of Columbus Day.

The law prohibits a person who voted during the early voting period from voting at the polls on Election Day.  The votes cast during the early voting time period will not be counted until after the polls close on Election Day.
