Yes, YOU CAN DO SAME DAY VOTER REGISTRATION TODAY! YOU CAN REGISTER TO VOTE AT YOUR POLLING PLACE, AND THEN VOTE!
Today is Election Day and the polls are open now!
In order to register to vote, you must meet these qualifications:
1)You must be a United States citizen
2)You must be at least 18 years old on or before the next election (OR for a General Primary, must be 17 and will be 18 by the General Election)
3)You must live in your election precinct at least 30 days before the next election
4)You must not be convicted and in jail ( could just leave this out since we aren’t registering any prisoners)
5)You cannot claim the right to vote anywhere else
No photo ID is required!
To register in person 2 pieces of ID are required, one with your current address. You will need the following:
1) Illinois Drivers License or Illinois Secretary of State- issued ID or provide the last 4 digits of your social security number. (1 of these 3)
2) One additional piece of identification (anything with your name on it…library card, work/school ID, credit card, etc.). However, if you use the last 4 digits of your SS# or if your Drivers License or State-issued ID does not have your current address, your other form of ID would need to have your current address. A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other document that shows both your name and current address.
***If you are a naturalized citizen either on your own or parents’ papers, you will need to know the date (month and year) and court where you were naturalized. Presentation of the naturalization papers is NOT required . You will just need to tell the registrar the date and court. If you don’t know that information and have a passport, you can use your passport as your proof of naturalization.
