* From WBEZ…
Those DuPage numbers are bonkers.
*** UPDATE *** Email…
The numbers in the graph would, as you state, be “bonkers” if they were accurate, but they are not. The state report WBEZ referenced in their article appears to have been overstating DuPage’s reported mail-in ballot requests by a factor of 2. As of our most recent numbers this afternoon, 27.3% of DuPage registered voters have requested a mail-in ballot, still a quite large number, but in line with the trends in other counties. WBEZ has updated their story, and I am told that the state will be correcting their report later today.
Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions.

Have you requested a VBM ballot yet?
