How & When You Can Vote

Voting Options

In Illinois, voters have three potential options for when and how to vote:

Early Voting

Voters can vote up to 40 days prior to an election through early voting. This requires traveling to one of Cook County’s early voting centers (including Northbrook Village Hall) and casting a ballot. Any Cook County resident can vote at any Cook County early voting center so long as they are registered. For more information on early voting centers and their hours, visit Cook County’s website.

Vote by Mail

If you will be absent during an upcoming election and the early voting period or cannot physically come to vote, you can request that Cook County mail you a ballot. Please note that these ballots will need to be returned by a specific deadline prior to Election Day. Please see Cook County’s website for more details.

Regular Voting

On Election Day, voters must vote at their regular precinct voting location. If you are unsure of your precinct’s location, you can use the Village’s Know Your Neighborhood Toolto find it. Simply type your address in the search bar on the upper left-hand side to zoom to your home and get your precinct information.
