These Are All 52 Early Voting Locations Across Chicago

NBCUniversal, Inc.

Dozens of early voting locations across Chicago officially open their doors on Monday, giving voters who have already made up their minds a chance to hit the ballot box ahead of the rush.

With election day just around the corner on March 17, officials say that early voting provides more flexibility to cast a ballot without worrying about crowded polling places.

There are early voting sites located in each of the city's 50 wards, as well as at the Chicago Board of Elections and another "super site" in the city's Loop.

That "super site," located at Clark and Lake, is the only location offering early voting before March 2. Early voting there began on Feb. 19 and continues through election day, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day except Sundays, when the hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Chicagoans can use any early voting site in the city, regardless of where they live. While a government-issued photo ID is not required to vote, it can be helpful to bring one should any questions about registration, address, signature, or more arise during the voting process.

James Allen, spokesman for the Chicago Board of Elections, walks us through the process of voting on the city's newest ballot machines.

Chicago residents who are not registered, but still wish to vote, will be allowed to register and cast their ballots at the same time under grace period registration at all 52 locations, however, those wishing to do so are required to bring two forms of ID, one of which has the voter's current address.

Each of the 52 locations will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. from March 2 through March 7. On Sunday, March 8, they will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The sites will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. from March 9 through March 13, and then from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 14. On March 15, they will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. On March 16 - the last day of early voting - the sites will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., except for six locations that will stay open through 7 p.m., as noted below.
