Illinois has multiple options for voter registration for the Nov. 3rd general election. You may register to vote by mail through Oct. 6th, or in-person during the "grace period" from Oct. 7th to Nov. 3rd. Voters with in-state IDs may also use the online system to register through Oct. 18th. If you would prefer to vote-by-mail, you must submit an application for each election, no excuse required.
Some congressional seats, state offices and constitutional amendments may be included on the ballot.
Early Voting Dates: Oct. 19th to Nov. 2nd
You can vote in-person at designated locations from Oct 19th to Nov. 2nd before the election. No excuse required.
To vote absentee-by-mail, first you’ll need to apply for an absentee ballot (click here) no later than Oct. 29th. Then, when you complete your absentee ballot, it must be received by election day.
Absentee by-mail ballot requests open 90 days prior to any election. Applicants must apply for each election, no excuse required.
