Millions across the country, and right here in Illinois, will be hitting the voting booths today. Here’s a comprehensive list of things you need to know in order to vote in the Land of Lincoln.
In Illinois, if you have voted before in the state, you do not need to show ID today when going to vote. If you are voting for the first time, and didn’t provide your driver’s license number, state ID number, last 4 digits of your Social Security number, or a copy of a current ID or government document that shows your name and address when you registered, you’ll need to provide one of these when you vote in person.
If you have not registered to vote, you can still do so on Election Day, but only at specific voting locations. To find one near you, contact your local County Clerk. If you are not sure if you have registered to vote or not, you can check by clicking here.
Voting in Illinois is open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. If you are unsure of where your voting location is, you can find out by simply typing in your full address here.
For any further questions you may have about voting, feel free to contact the WTVO/WQRF newsroom at (815) 963-2773 or through your local election officials listed in the link above.
