Kendall County Clerk Debbie Gillette speaks at a video forum on voting.

Kendall County Clerk Debbie Gillette says there are safeguards in place to make sure that mail-in ballots will be properly handled. The first mail-in ballots will be sent on September 24.
Gillette says preparing for the election has been a big undertaking for her office. Many people are opting for voting-by-mail because of risks associated with being in big crowds during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Voting will still be available at all polling places on election day. There is also one drop box for mail-in ballots at the county clerk's office in Yorkville.
 
There will also be curbside voting available on election day.
Early voting begins on September 24 at the clerk's office at 111 Fox Street in Yorkville. There will also be early voting at Oswego Village Hall and the Oswego Library Branch in Montgomery beginning October 11. Early voting will be available at Plano City Hall beginning October 18.
