If you do not receive an ID card within three weeks after you registered, call the DuPage County Board of Elections Office at (630) 407-5600.
A person who changed his or her name within 27 days of the election, and still lives in the same precinct, may vote after completing an affidavit. A woman who continues to use her maiden name after marriage may vote without having to complete an affidavit if registered under her maiden name.
It depends on when you move. If you moved within 27 days of the election in the same precinct you can vote a full ballot by signing an affidavit. If you moved more than 30 days before the election within the county or municipality under a board of election commissioners, and did not transfer your registration, you can vote on a ballot for federal offices only, after completing an address correction form. If you moved within 30 days before the election outside of your precinct, but you still live in the State, and did not transfer your registration, you can vote a full ballot in your old polling place after completing an affidavit. If you moved more than 30 days before the election out of your county or municipality under the board of election commissioners and did not transfer your registration, you cannot vote.

When conditions become hazardous, snow removal operations will begin. Snow plowing operations are carefully designed to allow for optimum use of available plowing equipment and personnel. These pre-determined routes begin with all Village owned major through streets, followed by commuter parking lots, and finally, side streets, dead ends, and cul-de-sacs. Depending upon when the snowfall begins, the commuter lots will be plowed at least once by 6:00 am. Using the priority system ensures that heavy access roads will be less accident prone for the traffic these roads generate.
Since road salt and calcium chloride are caustic and in high concentrations can pollute, the Public Works Department attempts to be judicious with its use to protect local ecology. This means that drivers cannot count on totally clear pavement, and should exercise caution.
There is simply no way to prevent the deposit of snow at the entrances of driveways. It is an unavoidable by-product of the effort to maintain clear and safe streets for everyone in the shortest amount of time possible. If you can, wait until the street is plowed before clearing your driveway.
For the safety of others, please do not shovel snow off your driveway or sidewalk onto the street. The snow will harden and become compacted, creating a safety hazard.
