Chicago Ward early voting sites may have delayed openings on Monday, February 20th

To comply with this court order, the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners must reprogram all Early Voting touchscreen machines to reflect this change, as well as rescan previously cast Early Voting ballots.

To cause the least amount of disruption for Chicago voters, this work will take place after Early Voting polls close today, Sunday, Feb. 19th at 4:00pm into the morning of Monday, February 20th.

Some Ward Early Voting Sites may have delayed openings on Monday, February 20th, and all Ward Early Voting sites will open as soon as possible.

The Board Supersite (191 N. Clark) and Board Offices (69 W. Washington) will remain open for regular hours tomorrow, Monday, February 20th, from 9:00am – 7:00pm.

Voters can check the open or closed status of Early Voting sites at or by calling Early Voting Election Central at 312.263.1394.
