To register to vote in Illinois:

In Illinois, you do not declare affiliation with a political party when you register to vote. In primary elections, you must choose to vote a specific political party ballot.

If you have moved or changed your name, you must re-register to vote.

The American Association of Persons with Disabilities (AADP) strongly advocates that all people with disabilities fully participate in the political process, including registering to vote.

Work on Election Day: The Cook County Clerk's office needs you to serve in a suburban precinct for the March 20 election. Local democracy depends on the poll workers who take pride in serving voters in their community each Election Day. These poll workers come together and make it possible for hundreds of their neighbors and fellow citizens to cast their ballots and have their voices.
