Press Release

Cook County Clerk David Orr announces the opening of voter registration for the November 2, 2004 general election.

Prospective voters in suburban Cook County can download and print an application in English, Spanish and Chinese on this website.

They can also sign up to vote at:

  • any village or township hall
  • the Clerk’s downtown office (69 W. Washington St., Suite 500)
  • any one of the satellite offices located in the five suburban Cook County courthouses.

Orr reminds voters that, if they have moved recently, they must re-register at their current address.

To qualify to vote, an individual must be: a U.S. citizen; at least 18 years old by Election Day (Nov. 2); and a resident of the same voting precinct at least 30 days prior to the election.

To register, prospective voters must present two pieces of identification, including one displaying a current address (a bill mailed to the prospective voter satisfies this requirement).

To receive a voter registration application by mail, individuals living in suburban Cook County can call the Clerk’s office at (312) 603-0906.

After completing the application, prospective voters should return it to the Cook County Clerk’s office at 69 W. Washington St, Room 500, Chicago, IL 60602. All applications must be delivered or postmarked by October 5.
