March 5 - Voter Registration Closes for the Consolidated Election


March 6 through April 1

Grace Period Registration/Voting is for those who did not register to vote or submit a change of address before the March Close of Registration. During this time, you may come to the County Clerk’s office and register to vote or change your address. You MUST vote at this time and you must present two forms of ID to register to vote; one of which must indicate your current address. You may register and vote on Election Day at your Polling Place with the proper ID. We do advise you to register before Election Day if possible, due to the potential of long lines at your Polling Place.


Registered voters may vote from the privacy of their home, or from their favorite vacation spot. Just mail in the application, or use the online application (www.mcleancountyil.gov/vbm), and your ballot will be mailed to you. We will start mailing ballots after February 21.

March 25 Last day for Election Authority to receive requests for, and mail, Military Vote by Mail full Ballots.

March 28 Last day for Election Authority to receive Vote by Mail Applications and mail the ballots.
