    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 for the Illinois primary is March 20, but you can early vote every day before then to avoid the rush. You can find all 51 early voting locations in Chicago here, all 52 early voting locations for suburban Cook County residents here, and information on early voting locations in 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.

    In addition to voting for your chosen candidates, your ballot may feature referendum questions on issues impacting you locally. You can see questions that will be on Chicago ballots here, questions that will be on Cook County ballots here, and questions on ballots in suburban counties here.

    For a full sample ballot, be sure to visit your local election authority's website, but to find out who you can vote for in all the major races, enter your address above. Happy voting!
