Update as of October 30, 2020:
The ballot box in our lobby will close at 6 p.m. on Monday, November 2. The only ballot box that will accept ballot envelopes on Election Day is located outside the Will County Clerk’s Office (302 N. Chicago Street, Joliet). That ballot box will close promptly at 7 p.m., along with all polling places.
Beat the lines on Election Day by registering to vote, dropping off your mail-in ballot or taking advantage of in-person early voting at our library.

Dropping Off Mail-In Ballots
If you haven’t already registered to vote, we have a team of voting registrars available to assist you with this process during regular library hours. This service is available here through Tuesday, October 6, but residents can continue to register to vote at thewillcountyclerk.com after October 6. Registering to vote is free and open to U.S. Citizens who are/will be 18 years of age by Election Day and have been a resident of their precinct for at least 30 days prior to the election. Two forms of identification are required, one of which must show your current address. You do not need an appointment to register to vote. Please note, we cannot register persons to vote via Zoom or at the drive-thru window.
If you have questions about early voting or elections, please contact the Will County Clerk’s Office at 815.740.4615.
See you at the library!
