Early Voting at the Naperville Municipal Center, 400 S. Eagle Street, runs March 20 through April 3, in advance of the 2017 Consolidated Election on April 4, 2017.

Early voting hours for DuPage County voters in Lower Level Meeting Room A are 8:30AM to 7:30PM Mon. through Fri., 9AM-5PM on Saturdays and 10AM-4PM on Sundays.

Hours for Will County voters upstairs in the City Clerks’s Office are from 8:30AM-4:30PM Mon. through Fri., 9AM-noon on Saturdays and Sundays.

Two more Early Voting sites

Early Voting is also offered the same hours at Olive Trees Condominiums, located at 200 E. Bailey; and the Fox Valley Mall, 195 Fox Valley Center.

Wherever and whenever you vote, be prepared. PN appreciates that the candidates have participated in numerous forums and provided many opportunities for voters to get to know them. And those videos are linked below.

Early Voting leaves little room for any registered voter to have an excuse not to vote. PN, however, enjoys the tradition of voting on Election Day, April 4. On Election Day polls will be open from 6AM to 7PM.

Thank you for taking an interest and being an informed voter where it matters most—locally, right here in your hometown.

(Note: The City of Naperville is served, in portions, by six townships: Naperville, DuPage, Lisle, Milton, Wheatland and Winfield. Illinois is home to 1,432 townships.)

Binding Question / The ballot in the Consolidated Election on April 4, 2017, will ask voters in Naperville Township and Lisle Township:

“Shall the Naperville Township Road District and the Lisle Township Road District of DuPage County, Illinois, be consolidated into one consolidated Township Road District?”  YES or NO

The College of DuPage Board of Trustees has openings to fill two 6-year seats in the county-wide race by petitioners Christine Fenne, of Wheaton; Dan Markwell, of Lombard; Taso Triantafillos, of Addison. One two-year term (unexpired) will be sought by Alan Bennett, of Lombard (No incumbents filed petitions by the deadline on Dec. 19, 2016. After candidates received petition objections, they were omitted from ballot.)  

Naperville Area Homeowners Confederation College of DuPage Board of Trustees Forum (March 6, 2017)

DuPage Township, Lisle Township, Milton Township, Naperville Township, Wheatland Township and Winfield Township as well as both school districts and the College of DuPage serve beyond the city limits of Naperville and will be on the ballot.

FYI, the Consolidated Election has attracted residents running to serve Naperville Township and School District 204 from Naperville and Aurora. No residents from Naperville filed to run for COD.

Thanks for your interest in the future of the Naperville community.
