You can now register online to vote if you have an Illinois driver’s license or Illinois ID card issued by the Secretary of State. Go to https://ova.elections.il.gov to see whether you can register online. You can register online by March 1, 2020 to be eligible to vote in the March 17, 2020 Primary Election.
You can also print out a registration form in English, Spanish, Hindi, Polish, Chinese, or Korean at the County Clerk's website. Complete and sign the form and mail it to the Cook County Clerk, 69 W. Washington St., Suite 500, Chicago, IL 60602. If you’ve moved, follow the same instructions but indicate that you are re-registering.
Registration forms must be postmarked by February 18th in order to vote in the March 17, 2020 Primary Election. After that date, you can still register online through March 1st. You can also register at a "grace period" voting location, but you must vote at the same time you register. You can now register and vote on Election Day, but don’t wait that long.
To register to vote, you must be a U.S. citizen, at least 18 years old by the general election, and a resident of your precinct at least 30 days prior to Election Day.
