Illinois declares election day a state holiday, expands vote by mail

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker signed two new laws to make it easier for residents to vote. New voters will be able to apply for a vote-by-mail ballot via a modified voter registration system, and all registered voters should receive their ballot by October 6, if their VBM application is submitted by October 1.

Additionally, the state has declared election day as a state holiday, meaning Government offices will be closed on November 3, 2020.
