New Update for 28th Ward Voters

The Illinois Appellate Court affirmed today that Shawn A. Walker is a candidate for 28th Ward Alderperson and that his name shall remain on the ballot.

The Appellate Court also affirmed that the 28th Ward election will not be delayed, and there will be no special election held.

So what does this mean for you? It means you should still vote in the upcoming February 28th Municipal Election, either by Early Voting, Voting on Election Day, or by returning your Vote By Mail ballot.

If you have already voted, your ballot will be counted and you cannot vote a second time. New Vote By Mail ballots will not be sent to voters.

Vote By Mail voters can return their ballots through the U.S. Postal Service or by using one of our Secure Drop Box sites throughout the city to return your ballot before 7pm on February 28th. Please note: if you are using USPS, you must make sure your Ballot Return Envelope is postmarked by February 28th. If you would like to instead vote in person, you can take your Vote By Mail ballot to any Early Voting Site , or to your assigned precinct polling place or 1 of 51 vote centers on Election Day, turn that ballot into an election official, sign a form, and then you can vote on the spot.

Voters can Early Vote at any of the city’s 52 sites through Monday, Feb 27th - click here for more information.

Voters can vote on Election Day by going to your assigned precinct polling place - click here to find your assigned polling place - or by going to one of 51 vote centers open on Election Day.
