Village Hall Front Counter Closure

As the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic continues, the Village of Brookfield remains diligent in providing service to residents in a safe and responsible manner. As an Early Voting location, voters from all over suburban Cook County are eligible to cast their ballot at Village Hall. In 2016, the Village had over 5,000 voters come in during early voting and we are anticipating the possibility of an even higher turnout this year.  Therefore, out of an abundance of caution, the Village of Brookfield front counter will be closed to in-person business during Early Voting and on Election day (Monday, October 19 – Tuesday, November 3, 2020). Village employees will continue to be in the office Monday – Friday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm during this time.
