Where and When Can I Register to Vote?

Registration is open all year throughout the County except during the 27 days preceding an election and reopens the second day following an election. Registration with a deputy registrar or mail-in forms is available all year except during the 27 days before an election.
Under federal law, citizens may apply to register to vote by mailing in an application. When you register by mail your mail-in form must be postmarked prior to the close of registration. In addition, a person must vote for the first time in person and may not vote by mail, unless the person first provides sufficient proof of identity and the County Clerk verifies the person's proof of identity.

Sufficient proof of identity shall be demonstrated by submission of the person's driver's license number or State identification card number. If unable to provide either form of identification, please call Voter Registration 847-377-2410.

Persons who apply to register to vote by mail but provide inadequate proof of identity to the County Clerk shall be notified by the County Clerk that the registration has not been fully completed and that the person remains ineligible to vote by mail or in person until such proof is presented.
