You may register any time except during the 30-day period beginning 28 days before an election and ending two days after said election. On-site locations for voter registration are published in advance in local newspapers.
Several members of the League of Women Voters are volunteer Deputy Registrars and may register voters that are residents of Illinois on request. A current list of registrars is maintained by our voter service chairs.
Absentee applications for ballots may be requested not more than 40 days or less than 5 days prior to election day if made by mail, and no less than 1 day if made in person at the Board of Elections. In order to be counted, ballots must be received by the Board by noon on election day, in time to be delivered to the precinct polling places.
