    You might know you're voting in Tuesday's midterm elections, but do you know where?

    You can check to find out if you're registered to vote in Illinois - and where your polling place is - by using the State Board of Elections' registration lookup tool

    If you're not registered, there's still time! You can take advantage of grace period registration through Election Day. You simply have to bring two forms of identification, one with your current address, to your polling place and be prepared to vote at the same time.   10 Races to Watch in Illinois' Midterm Elections10 Races to Watch in Illinois' Midterm Elections
