The following is taken from an April 12 email from Aaron Adams, Champaign County Clerk.
Additionally, ballot drop boxes were permanently authorized by the Illinois General Assembly and the Governor in 2021. The original seven (7) boxes that were available in the 2020 election cycle will be open and I have added an additional five (5) throughout the County in highly visible areas. You can find the complete listing here. You can deposit your ballot in any one of the ¼ inch steel secure drop boxes that are permanent to their location. When voting is open, the contents are picked up daily by two Election Judges, one from each party.
You can also track the status of your vote by mail request and see when your ballot has been accepted on our voter portal. The first day to mail vote by mail ballots is May 19, 2022. Please request your ballot now and encourage your friends and family to take advantage of this safe, secure, and convenient voting option.
Early voting and Election Day in-person voting will continue to be options. You can find the full early voting schedule here.
And one final reminder, the 2022 election dates are Tuesday, June 28th for the Primary and Tuesday, November 8th for the General.
If you have further questions or concerns, please contact our office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
