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.

Please be advised that for military personnel, Illinois law allows you to register to vote and to apply for an absentee ballot at the same time.
      • Illinois Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE)
      • Federal Voting Assistance Program


      • In Person: Not more than 90 days or less than 1 day prior to the election.
      • By Mail inside the US: Not more than 90 days or less than 5 days prior to the election.
      • By Mail outside the US:Not less than 30 days prior to the election to receive full ballot or; less than 30 days prior to the election, but more than 10 days prior to the election to receive a Federal Ballot only.

      Illinois has two forms of absentee voting:

      • Absentee in person, which is better known as early voting, and
      • Absentee by mail, which is commonly called by-mail voting.

      Who may apply to vote absentee?

      • Any qualified elector of the State of Illinois properly registered where registration is required.
      • Registered or non-registered members of the United States Armed Forces while on active duty, members of the Merchant Marines, and U.S. Government employees serving outside the U.S., as well as their spouses and dependents who expect to be absent from their county of residence on election day;
      • Registered and non-registered citizens of the United States, temporarily out of the country, and their spouses and dependents of voting age when residing with or accompanying them, who maintain a precinct residence in a county in this State;
      • Recent law changes allow children of military members who have never resided in Illinois and have reached the age of 18, to be eligible to vote by absentee ballot in Illinois.


      • Registered voters may cast a ballot prior to Election Day without having to provide a reason for wanting to vote early. This ballot is cast by personal appearance at the office of the election authority or at a location established by the election authority. An election authority is either a county clerk or a Board of Election Commissioners.


      • The period for early voting begins the 22nd day preceding a general primary, consolidated primary, consolidated, or general election and extends through the 5th day before Election Day.


      • An election authority may establish permanent polling places for early voting at locations throughout the election authority's jurisdiction, including but not limited to a municipal clerk's office, a township clerk's office, a road district clerk's office, or a county or local public agency office.

      College Student Voting In Illinois

      Students can establish residency in Illinois if they have a present intention to remain at their Illinois school address for the time being, and they intend to make it their principal home. In practice, the state elections division lets students choose whether they want to register at their previous address or at their school address. However, Illinois courts have indicated that they will presume that students have a permanent abode at their parents'address.

      Students who live in Illinois but move to another state for school, and who wish to establish or keep their Illinois voting residency.hould have no problem doing so unless they register to vote in another state. Like most states, Illinois allows students to keep their voting residency even if they move out of the county or state to attend school.

      Mover's Guide: Illinois

      Under federal law, if you move within 30 days of a presidential election, you are allowed to vote for President and Vice President in your former state of residence, either in person or by absentee ballot.

      If you moved to Illinois from another state, you must register to vote in Illinois to be able to vote.Unless you register in person at the office of the election authority, the last day to register is twenty-eight days before the election.You can also register in person at the office of the election authority during “grace period” registration, which ends on the seventh day before the election.

      If you moved in-precinct during the 27-day period before the election within the precinct, you can vote a regular ballot. When you vote, you will be required to fill out an application and maybe other forms.

      If you moved more than 30 days before an election, you can vote for federal offices only at your old polling place. When you vote, you will be required to fill out an address correction form. If you moved within 30 days before an election, you can vote a regular ballot (federal, state, and local offices) at the polling place associated with your old address. When you vote, you will be required to sign an affidavit.

      If you moved to a new address in a different county or congressional district (or different city, if the city board of election commissioners maintains the permanent registration records) more than 30 days before the election, you should complete a new registration form to update your registration records.
