Voter Registration
Registering to vote allows you to participate in the electoral process and gives you the power to make a difference in deciding who will serve elected office. You must be a registered voter in order to vote in any election.

Illinois voters do not need to register by political party or declare a political party membership or preference. However, voters may select a specific political party's ballot at their polling place when voting in a primary election.

Voter Qualifications
To register to vote you must be:
  • A U.S. citizen
  • At least 18 years old on or before November 8, 2016 (the next general election)
  • A resident of your precinct at least 30 days prior to the November 8, 2016 election
