This page is designed to help you find information for registering to vote and for finding information on the ballot. While it is primarily focused on the local Chicago area election, it does include information on registering for absentee ballots from other states.
Illinois Voter Information
Illinois' residents may register online, in person at the office of the election authority, at Driver's license facilities, with deputy registrars who are appointed in each jurisdiction, or via mail using the Illinois Voter Registration Application available in English and Spanish.
Illinois State Board of Elections
A great place to start for voter information.
Chicago Board of Election Commissioners
The mission of the Board of Election Commissioners for the City of Chicago is to administer a transparent, impartial and accurate election system. This includes managing voter registrations; safeguarding the rights of all voters to cast ballots independently in a safe and quiet atmosphere, free of interference or intimidation; and informing voters of all of their balloting options, such as Election Day voting, Early Voting and Vote By Mail. The Board serves as the quasi-judicial arm of the courts directly responsible for performing all statutory duties under federal and state election codes.
Absentee Voting Information
Vote.org is a nonpartisan nonprofit digital voting organization (formerly Long Distance Voter). Americans are eager to adopt digital voting solutions. Vote.org has built and will continue to iterate the digital technology that removes barriers to voting and increases voter turnout.
