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 October 18, 2020 to be eligible to vote in the November 3, 2020 General 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 October 6th in order to vote in the November 3, 2020 General Election. After that date, you can still register online through October 18th. 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.
