Election Day is Feb. 26, but you can early vote every day before then to avoid the rush. You can find all the early voting locations in Chicago here. If you vote on Election Day, you will have to go to your specific polling place. 

If you're not registered in Illinois but still want to vote, it's not too late! 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.  12 Races to Watch in Chicago's Municipal Elections12 Races to Watch in Chicago's Municipal Elections
