Electioneering & Voter Intimidation
As a reminder, voter intimidation is against the law. Election officials establish a campaign-free zone around the polling place to provide an intimidation-free election environment. Voter intimidation can occur if a voter feels pressured, threatened, or harassed by campaign workers or officials at the polling place. Certain activities, such as wearing campaign buttons, t-shirts, badges or hats, asking voters to vote a particular way, or leafletting is strictly prohibited within the campaign-free zone. The campaign-free zone will be clearly marked by election officials at the polling place.
Highland Park voters may report incidents of voter intimidation to the Election Judges. Individuals may also contact the public safety non-emergency line at 847.432.7730.
Polls will close and vote-by-mail ballot drop boxes will be locked at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, November 8. Once all voters in line at 7:00 PM have been served, election results will begin to be posted at LakeCountyClerk.info under the tab "Election Results." Learn more about how election results are reported.
Election Day voting site totals will be the first results available online. Early vote and vote-by-mail ballot totals will be added after polls close. By statute, these ballots can only be counted in the clerk’s office by election judges after the polls close at 7 PM on election night. If you voted by mail, you may check the status of your ballot online.
The Lake County Clerk reminds all residents that under Illinois law, election results are not final until 14 days after Election Day. Votes yet to be counted include verified provisional ballots and still-arriving mailed ballots postmarked no later than Election Day.
