October 19-23 from 8:30 am-5 pm
October 24 from 9 am-2 pm
October 26-30 from 8:30 am-5 pm
October 31 from 9 am-2 pm
Any voter registered in McHenry County is eligible to early vote here at the Library or at one of the other early voting locations in McHenry County.
Please note that we do not have a mail ballot drop box at the Library. You may surrender your mail ballot and signature envelope and vote in person if you wish, but there is not a box for dropping off mail-in ballots. There are four mail ballot drop boxes in McHenry County. If you received a mail-in ballot and wish to vote in person, but don’t bring the ballot with you, the election judge will have to give you a provisional ballot which will be counted after Election Day.
Other voting options:
- Voting by mail: registered voters may visit their county election authority website (McHenry county residents | Lake County residents) to request a mail ballot by October 29, 2020. Read through the Vote By Mail FAQs from McHenry County. You can also sign up to track your mail-in ballot.
- Election day: on November 3, voting for Algonquin precincts 46 and 65 only will take place at the Library.
