Today is the last day to request absentee ballots to be mailed for election

Absentee Voting

Today (Wednesday, October 31st) is the last day to request an absentee ballot be mailed for the November 6th General Election.

However, Grundy County Clerk Betty Spickard reports a registered voter cannot just call the County Clerk’s Office and request a ballot be mailed. An application must be filled out and signed in order to make the request. A family member may sign an application for a person requesting an absentee ballot.

Registered voters can also vote absentee for the General Election at their respective county clerk’s offices during regular hours through Friday and Monday until 5 o’clock.

There will also be special hours for absentee voting at the county clerk’s offices in Grundy and Livingston counties.

The Grundy County Clerk’s Office in the courthouse in Trenton will be open Saturday from 8 o’clock to noon. The Livingston County Clerk’s Office in the courthouse in Chillicothe will be open Saturday from 8:30 to 12:30.
