    The deadline for registering to vote in the April 7 runoff passed Tuesday, but it's not too late to cast your ballot if you missed it.

    The Chicago Board of Elections offers a grace period from March 11 to April 4 for those who failed to register or update their voter information online or by mail.

    Those who want to vote in the mayoral and aldermanic runoff elections can show up at the Chicago Board of Elections at 69 W. Washington and register in person from March 11 to March 22.

    Between March 23 and April 4, voters can register in person at the designated early voting sites in all 50 wards. Voters do not have to live in the ward they are voting in. A full list of voting sites is available at the Chicago Board of Elections website.

    Voters must cast their ballots immediately after registering in person.

    To register, voters must bring two forms of identification, with at least one showing the current address. Acceptable forms of identification include a driver's license, state ID card, passport and a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck stub or another government document that shows your name and address.
