Register to vote!

Register online by October 18th. Anyone who is
  • a US citizen
  • a resident of the jurisdiction at least 30 days prior to the election
  • 18 years old (or 17, if you will be 18 before November 3!)
can register to vote in Illinois!

Under new legislation, you can request your mail-in ballot at the same time you register to vote. This means you only have to submit one application - make sure you take advantage of this when you register online!

We're thrilled to be partnering with YVote on an intiative to register 10,000 new voters in Illinois for the election!
