Secure Ballot Box Will Be Available At Ogle County Courthouse

City of Oregon, Illinois

The Ogle County Courthouse in Oregon will have a secure ballot box nearby for residents voting by mail.

County Clerk and Recorder Laura Cook explained.

“The Ogle County voter can come and drop it off instead of going through the Postal Service, " she said, "and they don’t have to come into the courthouse. Because there are a lot of older voters out there that have health concerns.” 

Ballots placed in the drop box will be collected twice daily by election staff. Ballots sent through the mail must be postmarked no later than election day to be accepted.
