Register to Vote
Registering to vote has never been easier or more convenient. You can register online, in person or you can download registration forms and register through the mail.
Election Day Registration
This is the first Presidential Election to offer Election Day Registration. On November 8, voters who are not registered to vote can register and vote at their home precinct only, on Election Day. Any voter who is not registered and needs to know where to go to register and vote on Election Day can just go to the voter tool to search by address for their polling place.
Voters planning on registering to vote or updating their voter information on Election Day must bring two forms of ID, one with a current address.
If you have an Illinois driver's license or state ID, you may register online through the Illinois State Board of Elections website.
If you don't have a driver's license or state ID, fill out a form online, print, sign and mail it in.
