CHICAGO, IL – Ahead of the April 4th Municipal Run-Off Election, the Chicago Board of Elections released a list of wards and precincts that will receive Limited English Proficiency (LEP) assistance for Election Day. These precinct polling locations will have assigned bilingual poll workers and paper ballots in Spanish, Chinese, Hindi, Korean, Tagalog, and Polish.

Totals for LEP Assistance Precincts:


Spanish – 563 precincts
Polish – 105 precincts
Chinese – 60 precincts
Hindi/Gujarati/Urdu – 36 precincts
Tagalog – 11 precincts
Korean – 7 precincts

Additionally, every precinct polling place in Chicago will have a touchscreen voting machine and audio ballot in 12 languages: English, Spanish, Chinese (audio in Mandarin dialect), Hindi, Korean, Tagalog, Polish, Gujarati, Urdu, Ukrainian, Arabic, and Russian. Voters with limited English proficiency also have the right to bring an interpreter to help them understand and cast a ballot. LEP voters can choose who they want to help them, except the person cannot be the voter’s employer or labor union representative.

Please note: On Election Day, Chicago voters must go to their assigned precinct polling place OR to any of the 51 sites open as a ward vote center on Election Day (April 4) from 6:00am to 7:00pm.
