Not Registered? You Can Still Vote

<> on February 8, 2016 in Newmarket, New Hampshire.

If you missed the deadline for voting in the presidential primaries via mail or email, which was Tuesday, don’t despair! You can still cast your primary vote, and participate in upcoming Illinois primary election.

You just need to present two forms of ID, one of which shows your current address.

Chicagoans can vote in person through Sunday, February 28th, at the Chicago Election Board, located at 69 W. Washington St.

Then, from Feb. 29 through March 14, voters can register and vote at their choice of 51 early voting locations, including the Chicago Election Board. All the early voting locations and their hours are listed here.

All voting before election day must now be done in accordance with “Grace Period” regulations, which require voters to register and vote in the same visit.

Voters can also vote on election day, too—March 15—by registering and voting at the polling place closest to their homes.

Here are the exact hours for the two early voting sites with weekend and evening availability, according to the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners.
