Grace period registration and voting at early voting sites starts March 22. Individuals wishing to vote during the grace period must bring two pieces of identification to register, one with a current address. Grace period registrants immediately cast their ballot after registering to vote.
Vote by mail
The last day to apply for a ballot by mail is April 1. The first day to mail ballots is Tuesday, February 25. The last day mail ballots can be postmarked is April 6.
If after you applied for a mail-in ballot you decide to vote in person, you will need to bring your mail-in ballot to the early voting site or Election Day precinct polling place to surrender it to an election judge. The election judge should then give you a standard ballot, which you can fill out to vote in person.
Please read the directions for filling out the mail ballot carefully. Direct all questions to the Cook County Clerk's Office:
Glenview Village Hall, 2500 East Lake Avenue, is serving as one of more than 50 early voting locations for the April 6 Consolidated Election. Early voting will take place from Monday, March 22, through Monday, April 5, at Village Hall. Here's the schedule:

Early voting is conducted on touch screens that store every ballot style in Cook County, permitting any voter in suburban Cook County to vote at any location.
Voters do not need to provide an excuse or reason why they cannot vote on Election Day. A government-issued photo ID is not required, but is helpful if there is a question about the voter’s registration, address, or signature. Providing an ID can also speed up the process because ID card readers are available at every check-in station.
Registered suburban Cook County voters can only vote in their home precinct on Election Day.
Residents who are not registered may register and cast a ballot on Election Day thanks to same-day registration and voting. Those who wish to register on Election Day must present two qualifying forms of ID.
