Welcome to the web page of the Henry County Elections Department. As Henry County’s Election Authority, it is my responsibility for administering all elections within Henry County. There are 52 precincts with approximately 36,000 registered voters in the county. This department is also responsible for training deputy registrars, election judges, providing polling places for all precincts, and publishing the Voter’s Information Guide.
On Election Day, the polls are open from 6:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Voters who are not able to vote at their respective precincts on Election Day may request an application to vote by mail. Voting by mail allows voters to cast a ballot prior to Election Day by applying for a ballot through the mail or in person at the County Clerk’s Office. Illinois State Statutes allows for early voting which allows voters to cast a ballot prior to Election Day without having to offer a reason or excuse for wanting to vote early. Grace period voting allows any unregistered qualified elector who missed the deadline for registering to vote, to come to the County Clerk's Office to register to vote and submit a change of address but requires them to vote their ballot at the time they do so.
