Is voter registration closed...??

"Those who stay away from the election
think that one vote will do no good.
'Tis but one step more to think
one vote will do no harm."
Dear Circ,

I guess I really screwed things up. I just plain didn't register to vote. Now I understand that you're no longer registering voters. What do I do? Am I not allowed to vote in this election?

Samuel C. Itzen

Dear Sam,

We're afraid you are correct. We can no longer register you to vote at the library for the fall 2016 election. General registration closed on October 11. However, you do have two options that will still allow you to vote, online registration or in person "grace period" registration and early voting.

Between October 12, and October 23, you can register to vote online here, if you have an Illinois Drivers license or an Illinois State I.D. and a Social Security Card.

From October 12 to October 23, you can register in person at the DuPage County Election Commission Office. However, you will also have to vote at the same time, and you cannot change your ballot choices at a later date.  From October 24 until November 7, you can register in person to vote at any of the "Grace Period" Registration and Early Voting locations in DuPage County, as well as the DuPage County Election Commission Office. Again you will be required to vote at the same time that you register, and you will not be able to change your choice later.

On November 8, the day of the election, you can register and vote at the same time at your normal polling place. Check online to find your polling place by address here.
