Illinois Now Offering a Chance to Vote by Mail…Forever

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP)  Illinois voters have the chance to sign up to send their ballots for November and spring elections by mail — forever. Elections officials are sending applications for permanent permission to vote by mail to each of the state’s 8 million registered voters. A 2021 law requires that every voter receive an application providing a choice to be on a permanent vote-by-mail list, though no one is obligated to sign-up. If you move, you must reapply. Elections officials remove voters’ names from the rolls when eligibility cards they mail annually are returned to them as undeliverable.
