It has never been more convenient to register to vote in DuPage County!
Until registration closes on February 16th, you can register to vote at any registration facility or online using the Illinois State Board of Elections website at: https://ova.elections.il.gov/
After the close of registration, Illinois Law also allows voters to register by taking advantage of “Grace Period” Registration. During the “Grace Period,” you must register or transfer your registration in person and vote during the same visit.
Illinois recently passed legislation extending “Grace Period” registration and voting at Early Voting locations and on Election Day at their respective polling place. Voters who miss the February 16th deadline can take advantage of the “Grace Period” using the following times and locations:
February 17th – March 14th Election Commission office
February 29th – March 14th 11 Early Voting locations
March 15 (Election Day) Your designated polling place
In order to register to vote you must be a U.S. citizen; be born on or before November 8, 1998; live in your precinct at least 30 days before the election; not be in prison/jail serving time for a conviction; and not claim the right to vote elsewhere.
When registering, Grace Period Voters must present two forms of identification; one must contain their current address. Some acceptable forms of identification include a valid Driver’s license or State identification card, Passport, or current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck stub, or other government document containing name and address.
