As the March primary election nears, make sure you're registered to vote. The deadline to register to vote in the March 20 primary is Tuesday, Feb. 21.
To register, you'll need two forms of valid ID, such as a driver's license, utility bill, library card or other forms of identification. You may print a voter registration application form ahead of time at cookcountyclerk.com. They are available in English, Spanish, Hindi and Chinese.
Where can you register?
- Village Hall, 9418 S Kedzie Ave
- Cook County Clerk's office, 69 W. Washington St., Room 500, Chicago, IL 60602--register in-person or mail with a Feb. 21 postmark
- Worth Township, 11601 South Pulaski Rd., Alsip
To qualify to vote, a person must be a U.S. citizen, at least 18 years old by Election Day (March 20) and a resident of his or her precinct for at least 30 days prior to the election.
Voters who miss the regular registration deadline may still vote if they register during the 14-day grace period. Grace-period registration runs from Feb. 22 through March 13.
