When is Election Day?

Election Day this year is November 8, 2022.

How Can I Vote By Mail?

You can apply to vote by mail by visiting http://chicagoelections.gov/en/vote-by-mail.html and applying. The deadline to submit applications to vote by mail is November 3, 2022.

To be counted, vote-by-mail ballots must be:

  • Sent by U.S. Postal Service and postmarked by November 8, 2022, or 
  • Returned at any Early Voting Location before November 8, 2022, or
  • Delivered personally to the Election Board at 69 W. Washington, 6th Floor before November 8, 2022.

Note that any mail ballot that is postmarked November 9, 2022 or later cannot be counted by law. If a ballot envelope is placed in a U.S. Postal Service box on or near Election Day, that envelope may be postmarked late and may not be eligible to be counted.

How Can I Vote In Person On Election Day?

If you are registered to vote, you should have received a voting card in the mail that will have information about your polling place. 

If you did not receive the card, you can visit https://chicagoelections.gov/en/your-voter-information.html and enter your address information to learn where you can vote in person.

How Can I Register to Vote?

If you are not registered to vote, you can register:

  • In person at all early voting sites, including those listed above, or
  • In person on Election Day at your precinct polling place

To register, you must show two forms of identification, including at least one listing your current address. Acceptable forms of identification are listed here: https://chicagoelections.gov/en/when-you-need-id-to-vote.html.

Did I Hear That Legislative District Boundaries Have Changed?

You did! Both state legislative and congressional districts have been redrawn since the last general election. 

In the race for Congress, Ravenswood Manor is now split between two districts: a new 5th Congressional District and a new 3rd Congressional District. As the above image shows…

  • The 5th Congressional District includes the area of Ravenswood Manor bounded by the Brown Line Tracks to the North, Francisco Avenue to the West, and Montrose Ave to the South.
  • The 3rd Congressional District encompasses areas of the Manor including: everything north of the Brown Line, and a section south of the Brown line that is bounded by Francisco to East. 

The entirety of Ravenswood Manor still falls within the:

  • 6th State Senate District
  • 11th State House District
  • 12th Cook County Commission District
  • 2nd Cook County Board of Review District
  • 6th Cook County Judicial Subcircuit

The mayoral and aldermanic elections – under new aldermanic boundaries (which are different from those described above) – will NOT be on the ballot until February 2023.

To preview your current ballot visit the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners: https://chicagoelections.gov/en/home.htmlTo learn more about the candidates on your ballot, consider some reliable, nonpartisan informational sources such as: www.ballotready.org and `www.Ballotpedia.org
