Will County Clerk Lauren Staley Ferry's Voter Information Guide Mailed to all Households with Registered Voters

JOLIET - Will County Clerk Lauren Staley Ferry announces that every household with at least one registered voter should receive a Voter Information Guide that will provide important information about the April 6, 2021 Consolidated Election.

Voter Information Guides, which should begin arriving in homes in the coming days, will include sample ballots personalized for each precinct. Sample ballots will enable voters to research specific candidates and referenda before they cast their votes in local races.

 The Voter Information Guide is designed so that all voting information is categorized in an easy-to-read format. This guide also provides:

  • Information about how to request a Vote By Mail Ballot.
  • Nearby Early Voting sites with hours of operation. Early Voting is already open during business hours at the Will County Clerk’s Office in downtown Joliet and will expand to more than 20 additional sites throughout Will County beginning on March 22. 
  • Polling Place locations where people can vote on Election Day.

“The Voter Information Guide contains a great deal of information that will enable voters to research candidates and issues that appear on their specific ballots,” Staley Ferry said. “These are tailor-made guides that outline all of their voting options. Voters may bring the guides into the polling booths to assist them if they choose to cast their ballots on Election Day.”  

Voters also may visit the Will County Clerk’s website at thewillcountyclerk.com to view a sample ballot, request a Vote By Mail Ballot, find nearby Early Voting locations, or to learn about other election-related information.
