March Primary Information--Cook County Clerk's Office

Dear Voter,
Here are 2 powerful actions you can take today to help improve your community and your country as we approach the March 17th Primary Election.

1. Update your voter registration to your new address if you need to; 
    Then send the link below to a friend - maybe someone who just moved. 

  • This link works for any Illinois citizen who will be 18 by Nov. 3*.
  • Online Registration takes about 2 minutes.  You'll need a driver's license or state ID.
  • Register or make updates online by Sunday, March 1.
  • No ID? You can still register.  Follow the link above for a mail-in registration form.
  • If you register on paper, put it in the mail by Feb. 18.

2. Apply to have your ballot mailed to you  

  • Only works if you're registered.  If not, see step 1!
  • Not in Cook County?  We probably link to your county.
  • Mail ballots must be postmarked by Election Day, March 17.

You don't have to cast your vote by mail  

  • You can find an Early Voting site or your Election Day polling place on our website by clicking the following link.

We also need Election Judges in many precincts
