WHERE DO I VOTE ON ELECTION DAY? Voting places can change between elections. Check your polling place:
STATEWIDE: POLLING PLACE INFORMATION
CAN I STILL VOTE BY MAIL? Yes, if you already have a vote-by-mail ballot. It must be mailed and postmarked no later than today.
CAN I STILL REGISTER TO VOTE? Yes. This is the first Presidential Primary Election to offer Election Day Registration. On March 15, voters who are not registered to vote can register and vote at their home precinct only, on Election Day. Any voter who is not registered and needs to know where to go to register and vote on Election Day can just go to the polling place search tool to search by address for their polling place.
Voters planning on registering to vote or updating their voter information on Election Day must bring two forms of ID, one with a current address.
WHO CAN REGISTER NOW? If you recently moved to Illinois, will be 18 by Nov. 8, 2016, changed your name or moved to a different address—you need to register to vote!
ARE YOU ELIGIBLE? To vote, you must:
• Be a United States citizen,
• Not be convicted of an offense and in jail,
• Be at least age 18 on or before the next general election,
• Not claim the right to vote anywhere else, and
• Live in your election precinct at least 30 days prior to the next election.
HOW CAN I CHECK MY REGISTRATION? You do not need to re-register to vote in Illinois between elections. Check your registration status:
