Help! I've received multiple vote by mail applications

Posted on July 31, 2020 at 11:04 PM by Robert Watson

Most voters will receive more than one vote by mail application. Political parties, voting advocate organizations, and other entities may send vote by mail applications to voters. This may create confusion for voters, but rest assured that if you send in one properly completed application, it will be processed. If there is an issue with your application, election office staff will contact you.

Though you can send any of the vote by mail applications you receive to the County Clerk's office, we recommend you send the application that we send to you. This will streamline processing the application.

Checks and balances are in place to prevent more than one application from being processed. Even if you submit more than one application, you will only be sent one ballot.

McLean County has two election jurisdictions. The McLean County Clerk's Office has mailed a vote by mail application to all active voters in McLean County except city of Bloomington voters. Those voters are in the Bloomington Election Commission (BEC) jurisdiction, which has also mailed vote by mail applications, can be reached at the BEC website..

If you are an active registered voter in McLean County, and did not receive a vote by mail application by August 7, 2020, please contact the McLean County Election Team. If you prefer, you can also complete a vote by mail application on the McLean County Website. There is a version to print and mail in, or one to submit online.
