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:
The CDC website offers guidelines for voters, including the suggestion that individuals vote early or use alternative methods (mail-in voting) to avoid crowds on Election Day and to limit contact with other individuals.
Avoid lines on election day and vote early. Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts (600 N East St, Bloomington) will serve as a universal early voting poling place beginning February 25. The early voting polling place is open Monday - Friday 8:30am - 4:30pm.
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. The Bone Student Center will serve as the polling place for precints 8 and 30 on election day. More information about all other polling locations coming soon.
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 postmarked by April 6 to be counted.
Need a stamp? Students can stop by the Center for Civic Engagement at 300 W. North Street, Normal, to pick up a stamp for their mail-in ballot.
