If you are permanently physically incapacitated and unable to make it to your polling place, you qualify to automatically receive an application for a mail ballot before every election for the next five years.
Good News! Cook County is now offering Permanent Vote By Mail. This option will allow you to vote by mail in all subsequent elections held in Cook County. You will still have the option to vote by mail in a single election if you so choose.
To sign up, you must:
- Be a registered voter
- Submit a notarized Disabled Voter Program application completed by you and your doctor. If you haven’t already applied to vote by mail, the Clerk’s office will send you a mail ballot application. For more information:
- Call: (312) 603-0938
