Lake County voters can head to the polls in advance of the November 3 General Election beginning on October 19. Early Voting will continue through October 31st and sites will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily. Two additional Early Voting sites have been added this year to make a total of 12 locations throughout the county.
During Early Voting, voters may choose any one of the different locations to cast their ballot, instead of waiting until Election Day to vote at their assigned precinct.
“We believe there will be a high turnout at the polls. Utilizing the flexibility of Early Voting will help decrease wait times on Election Day,” said Lake County Supervisor of Elections Allan Hays.
For the list of all Early Voting locations and directions, click here. Additionally, secure drop boxes will be available at each Early Voting site for any voters wishing to deposit their completed vote-by-mail ballots instead of returning them by USPS.
Sample ballots will be mailed to all voters who have not opted to vote by mail. Voters can mark up their sample ballot and bring it with them to the polls. They can then easily transfer their selections to their actual ballot. “If voters are already prepared with their selections, it will help minimize the amount of time spent in the privacy booth and therefore improve wait times,” said Hays. Sample ballots are also available here.
