Illinois: Voting at the Polls on Election Day

Poll Hours: 6 a.m. - 7 p.m

    Regular elections are held on the third Tuesday in March (primary) and the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November (general) of even-numbered years. In odd-numbered years, some jurisdictions have a primary on the last Tuesday in February and all jurisdictions have an election on the first Tuesday of April (consolidated).

    Each voter must vote at his/her precinct polling place. Check your polling place location with the election authority for your jurisdiction.

    Bring Appropriate identification with you to the polls

    • If you register by mail, you must vote in person the first time, either at the polling place, in-person absentee or early voting, unless you submit with your mail-in registration form your driver license number or state ID number, the last four digits of your social security number, or one of the forms of ID listed below. Voters voting under the provisions of UOCAVA and the Voting Accessibility for the Elderly and Handicapped Act do not have to vote in person for the first time after having registered by mail

    Any of the following IDs may be used, even if expired:

    • A current and valid photo identification
    • Utility bill
    • Bank statement
    • Government check
    • Paycheck
    • Lease or contract for residence
    • Student ID and mail addressed to voter's residence
    • Government document

    If a voter's name doesn't appear on the official voter list or if his/her vote is successfully challenged, he may cast a provisional ballot . A voter who casts a provisional ballot may check the status of that ballot to determine whether it was tabulated.
