With a week to decide who you’ll vote for in the Illinois General Election Nov. 4, the IAR encourages you to make your voice heard on the local, state and national levels!

However, if circumstances prevent you from going to your polling place next Tuesday, the Illinois State Board of Elections can provide you with information that may help. Check out these approaching deadlines:

  • Thursday (Oct. 30) – the last day the election authority may receive absentee applications by mail from registered voters still in the United States.
  • Nov. 2 – the last day for early voting at permanent election authority locations.
  • Nov. 3 – the last day registered voters can apply in person for an absentee ballot.
  • Nov. 4 – the last day for grace period registration and for voting in general elections.

If you need contact information for state elected officials, the Illinois State Board of Elections provides an online tool for your computer or mobile device. Also, the Illinois REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) provides direct contributions to pro-REALTOR® candidates and asks IAR members to vote for candidates in “Opportunity Races.”

Typically, 75 percent of Illinois REALTORS® vote in elections. Please join us!
