Voters that are going to be gone for election day have a couple of voting deadlines coming up next week. Today is the last day that ballots can be mailed to men and women in the military. Meanwhile, Thursday is the last day any other absentee ballots can be dropped in the mail.
You still have plenty of time to vote absentee in person. The last day for that is Monday November 5th. Grace period voting and early voting in Illinois end November 3rd.
