FEBRUARY 16, 2016 is the last day of regular voter registration in Illinois.

The primary election is March 15, 2016 and will include County, State and Presidential candidates.

Voting is an essential civic duty and I hope that you will take the time to participate your upcoming elections.

You can check to see if you are registered to vote here.

Residents with a state drivers’ license or ID issued by the secretary of state’s office can register to vote online at the State Board of Elections’ website until regular registration tomorrow.

Residents who wish to register or change their voting address after February 16 may do so through election day on March 15. During the grace period, residents may register in person at the office of their election authority. Grace period registration requires two pieces of identification, one of which must include a current address.

17-year-olds who will turn 18 by the November 8 general election can participate in the March 15 primary election.
