Early voting officially began May 19 with a single polling place at the County Administration Building and will continue through June 27.

Voters who intend to cast their ballots on the day of the primary must do so at their assigned polling place or the County Clerk’s Office, which is a universal polling site. Because a number of precinct boundaries and polling places have changed since the last election, voters are strongly encouraged to double check their voting location by going to the county clerk’s website.

Those wishing to vote by mail still have time to apply for a ballot, but the County Clerk’s Office must receive the application no later than June 23. A vote-by-mail ballot application can also be obtained by visiting the County Clerk’s Office or online at mchenrycountyil.gov.

Vote-by-mail ballots can be mailed in, delivered in person or dropped off at any time at the secure ballot drop box in front of the County Administration Building. Drop boxes will also be available at the McHenry Township Office, Lake in the Hills Village Hall and Algonquin Township Office in the voting room. Ballots must be postmarked no later than June 28 to be counted.
