If you will be gone on election day, you can still vote by requesting an absentee ballot. You can request for it to be mailed to you or you can stop in at the county clerk’s office. If you have not registered to vote, there is still time. The deadline to register is March 10. You can even register to vote at River East Public Library. For all of your voting questions, visit the McHenry County Clerk’s website. And click here to get your Absentee Ballot Request Form. Vote Yes for River East Library!
