Chicago Public Schools announced updates to the district’s 2020 LSC elections, including offering mail-in voting for CPS parents, guardians and staff for the first time. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, parents, guardians and staff can choose between either voting in-person at their respective school, submitting their ballot by mail, or dropping off their mail ballot at their school.  For in-person voting, the district is implementing stringent health and safety measures, including social distancing, face covering requirements, and completing a health screener and temperature check prior to entering school buildings. The district will also offer curbside voting for individuals with disabilities. Community members will still be required to vote in person because the district does not have access to information for every prospective community voter living within a school’s boundary in order to provide a mail-in ballot. Additionally, high schoolers will participate in elections using a digital format.

In-Person Election Times and Dates:

Elementary Schools: November 18 between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.

High Schools: November 19 between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
