Early voting and vote by mail begins on Thursday, February 6, 2020.
Early voting and voting by mail is an opportunity for those who will be traveling, for college students, for those who are home bound, or those who prefer to vote in the comfort of their home.
Voting in the County Clerk’s office will take place between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. The Courthouse will be closed on 2/12 and 2/17.
Any correctly registered voter wishing to request a ballot by mail can do so either by calling the office to request an application, or by completing an application for ballot at il.shelby.accessliberty.com under vote by mail request.
Since this is a primary election, the requestor must select a party type. Also anyone needing to register to vote can do so in person with a Deputy Registrar, at the County Clerk’s office, or online at the State Board of Elections. Two forms of ID, one with a current address, but be presented when registering in person.
Voter registration ends on February 18. After 2/18, those wishing to register can only do so, in person at the County Clerks office and must be prepared to vote at the same time. This is called grace period registration and runs through Election Day.
Those needing to register and vote in Shelby County can only do so in the County Clerk’s office after February 18.
The Clerk’s office will also be open on Saturday, March 7 and Saturday, March 14 from 9:00 a.m. to noon for voting. Contact the Shelby County Clerk’s Office for any questions.
