    Editor's note: As votes are counted across Illinois tonight, you can track election results LIVE right here.

    With so many important political races happening across Illinois, it can be tough to keep track of every name on the ballot. That's why we've created a tool to help you learn who your representatives are - and who's running against them - before you head to your polling place.

    Election Day is Nov. 6, but you can early vote every day before then to avoid the rush. You can find all the early voting locations in Chicago, Cook County and the area's suburban counties here.

    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.  10 Races to Watch in Illinois' Midterm Elections10 Races to Watch in Illinois' Midterm Elections
