Already made up your mind on who to vote for - and want to avoid the Election Day rush?
You can vote early at dozens of locations across Chicago's suburban counties every day through March 16. With the exception of Will County, if your county offers multiple early voting locations, you can pick whichever one is most convenient for you.
While a government-issued photo ID is not required to vote under Illinois law, it can be helpful to bring one should any questions about registration, address, signature, or more arise during the voting process.
If you're not registered, but still wish to vote, you can register and cast your ballot at the same time under grace period registration, however, in order to do so, you must bring two forms of identification, one of which has your current address.
If you choose to vote on election day, you must go to your specific polling place - not any of the early voting locations.
