Voters who are permanently physically incapacitated and unable to make it to their polling place might qualify to automatically receive applications for absentee ballots before every election for the next five years.

Those who believe they qualify for this service should download the “Disabled Voter Application Form” from the DeKalb County Clerk’s website. Each form must be completed and returned with a physician’s sworn statement indicating that the voter is eligible to receive this service or provide a disability card issued by the State of Illinois for verification.

Voters also can call the elections office at (815) 895-7147 or visit the office at 110 East Sycamore St. in Sycamore to sign up for the program.
