In the past, the General Election ballot has allowed you to check one box if you wanted to vote a straight party ticket.  Public Act 268 of 2015 eliminated straight party voting. What does that mean?  It means that you will need to vote each race, which equates to many ovals being filled in and long waits at the polls.  If you are over 60 years old you are eligible to be on a permanent absentee voter list.  In addition, if you are 60 years or older and/or plan to be away from home, you may apply for an absentee ballot.
