Illinois Primary 2022: How and Where to Vote in Tuesday's Primary Election

NBCUniversal Media, LLC

Editor's Note On June 28 at 6 a.m.: Election Day is here, and polls are officially open! Make sure you know where your designated Election Day polling place is. Here's how to find yours.

Election Day for the Illinois Primary is around the corner, and as of Monday morning, 98,512 ballots have been cast for Tuesday's election through early voting and mail-in ballots.

That may seem like a high number. But according to the Chicago Board of Elections, voter turnout for the 2022 June 28 Illinois Primary is low.

Early voting locations across the Chicago area have been open since early this month, and officials say early voting provides more flexibility to cast your ballot, with more options for locations and times to avoid the rush on Election Day.

Registering to Vote

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.

While the period to register to vote online has closed, voters can register in person and vote up until Election Day. Those wishing to do so are required to bring two forms of ID, one of which has the voter's current address.

Voting by Mail

If you requested to vote by mail and want to hand deliver your ballot to your local election authority, you can do so at in person at your county clerk's office or a designated ballot drop box location.

If you prefer to mail back your ballot, it must be postmarked by Election Day in order for your vote to be counted.

If you requested to vote by mail but would prefer to vote in person, you can do so by surrendering your mail-in ballot to an election judge for cancellation at an early voting site or your polling place, then casting your ballot there in person. If you did not receive your mail-in ballot, you can also vote in person by signing an affidavit that you did not receive it or were informed by your election authority that they did not receive your ballot in the mail.

Voting on Election Day

If you choose to forego both voting by mail and early voting, and just want to vote on Election Day, unless you are in Chicago, suburban Cook County or DuPage County, you will only have one option: your designated polling place, which you can find on your local election authority's website.

With the exception of some locations in Will County (as noted below), all residents of any of the counties listed can vote at any of that county's early voting locations, excluding Chicago voters at suburban Cook County polling places.

If you haven't voted yet, here's where you can do that -- both on Monday and on Election Day Tuesday.
