Grace-period voting, registration
Grace-period ( in-person ) voter registration is taking place through Nov. 7.
This is for those who missed the Oct. 11 deadline to register by mail or the Oct. 23 deadline to register online. Voters must come in person and need at least two forms of identification, at least one of which shows the address of their new/updated registration. It is open to those who need to change address or name.
Those who need to register for the first time, or file an address update, or file a name change, visit an early voting/registration site:
Now through Nov. 7 at the Loop Super Site at 15 W. Washington St.; or
Now through Nov. 7 at the 50 ward sites for early voting & registration
Those who need to register or update their registration on Election Day must register at their home precinct for ballots to count. A voter who needs to register, or file a change of address, or file a change of name during early voting/registration needs to show two forms of ID, one of which shows the voter's current address.
See ChicagoElections.com/en/grace-period-registration-and-voting.html to determine the precinct.
