Tuesday is the deadline to register to vote by mail in Illinois.
Most people in county jails haven’t been convicted of a crime. And those people awaiting trial are still eligible to vote. If you're a registered voter, you may still request a mail-in ballot while you're detained before the election.
2020 is the first year where county jails in Illinois are mandated to have a vote-by-mail system in place for those people.
