Get Out the Vote & Polling Places
Here is some information to help you identify your polling place, and how you can help on Election Day to Get Out The Vote (GOTV).
Polling Place Information
If you don't know what precinct you are voting in, that information is availble from the Lake County Clerk's website:
Also, from the Lake County Voter's Guide:
Visit LakeVoterPower.info to confirm your registration, find your polling place and preview your official ballot. In order to vote early, by mail or on Election Day, you must be registered to vote.

GOTV Activities on Election Day
Polls will open at 6:00 am and close at 7:00 pm.
If you can spend some time during the day encouraging people to go vote, please do so. Flyer distribution on election day is not necessary, we don't want to turn a potential voter off by being pushy. Keep some information on hand if a voter asks for it.
- Stay Clear of the No Electioneering Zone. It will be marked by an orange cone and a sign that states "No Electioneering Beyond This Point".
- Do Not Impede Voters Going into the Polling Place. As voters approach, politely let them know that you are supporting a candidate (use any phrasing you like) and thank them for coming out to vote.
- If you become aware of any voting irregularities, or witness a violation of the No Electioneering Zone at your polling place, you can call the Lake County Clerk's Office at 847 377-2314 to report it.
Before or on election day, if you need flyers to distribute, or if you know of someone who will need a ride to their polling place, email me at email@example.com and I will personally deliver the materials, or arrange transportation as needed. I will provide a contact number to supporters that sign up for GOTV activity in advance.
Every Voter is Important and Every Vote Counts!
