  3. A resident of your precinct at least 30 days prior to Election Day

Bring two pieces of identification. Neither needs to be a photo ID, but one must include your current address. Acceptable forms of ID include:

  • Illinois driver's license
  • Illinois state ID
  • Employee or student ID

Registration with deputy registrars at the library is closed during the 27 days prior to an election and the two days after an election. If you miss the deadline, you can register at the office of the election authority through grace period registration and voting. Locations and hours vary for each election. You can also register to vote online, by downloading and mailing in a voter registration card.
