As you're preparing to cast your vote, here are a few reminders and tips to help you get started.
There are three ways to vote:
Avoid long lines on election day and vote early with locations right here on campus. Early voting will also be available at the McLean County Clerk's Office in October.
Polling place hours are 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. If you are in line by 7 p.m., you are entitled to vote.
Any person registered to vote in Normal, IL or McLean County can vote at the Bone Student Center and Watterson Towers on election day despite the polling place listed on your voter registration. Residents registered to vote in Bloomington, IL can find your polling place online.
College students can register and vote using your campus address or your permanent (home) address. If you have previously registered at your campus address, or if you have not yet registered to vote, simply visit the polling place for your permanent (home) address and register there on Tuesday. Locate your polling place through the State Board of Elections website.
If you cannot make it to a polling place during an early voting time or on Election Day, you can request to vote by mail through TurboVote. Allow time for your ballot to be mailed to you and make sure your ballot is received by the deadline to be counted.
