Last Day for Illinois Voters to Register

Tuesday, February 18th is the last day to register to vote in Illinois.

The primary election is March 17th, and first time voters, or people who have moved since the last election, need to get their information in order.

You can register or update your address at your County Clerk's Office, as well as the Department of Motor Vehicles, most City and Village offices, and some public libraries. Those registering also need two forms of ID, such as bank statements, birth certificates, driver's licenses, or credit cards.

Early votes can be cast at the County Clerk's office until March 16th. Those who want to vote by mail can get an application from the County Clerk's website as well.

To register online, visit ova.elections.illinois.gov.

I'm currently a Senior at Augustana College, working on majors in Multimedia Journalism and Mass Communication and Communication Studies. In addition to interning at the station, I also work for the Augustana Observer, the college's official student newspaper, as a writer for the Arts and Entertainment section.
