In-Person Early Voting Before Election Day

Any Chicago voter may use any Early Voting site in the city, regardless of where in the city the voter lives.

Ballots cast in Early Voting are final. After casting ballots in Early Voting, voters may not return to amend, change or undo a ballot for any reason. It is a felony to vote more than once — or to attempt to vote more than once — in the same election.

Voters don’t need a reason or excuse to use Early Voting.  Government-issued photo ID is not required but is helpful if there is a question about the voter‘s registration, address, signature or if there are two voters with the same or similar names at the same address.

Registration services also are available at all Early Voting sites. NOTE: Any voter who needs to register for the first time or file a change of address or a change of name needs to show two forms of ID, one of which shows the voter‘s current address.


Early voting will begin on September 29 ONLY at 69 W. Washington St., and then, starting Octctober 10 at 15 W. Washington St.
NOTE: Early Voting at the 50 Ward Sites will start October 24.
