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 19. With the exception of Will County, if your county offers multiple early voting locations, you can pick whichever one is most convenient for you.
If you live in Chicago, you can find all 51 early voting locations in the city, as well as their hours, here. Suburban Cook County voters have 52 options to vote early, which can all be found here.
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.
