Online Registration Deadline

Illinois law states that voter registrations submitted on paper cannot be accepted by mail after October 23. We’re now in a period called Grace Period Registration. During this period, if a person wants to register, they must do so at a specified location and they must vote immediately after registering. Registering voters must present two forms of ID.

Grace Period Registration is available at Early Voting sites and on Election Day.
If you submitted a paper registration dated on or before October 23, or you’re correcting an issue with your paper registration, we can still accept it. However, any person wishing to register after October 23 must do so in-person.

Registering on Election Day may result in longer wait lines. We suggest you try to register and vote early if you can
