Voter Registration:

To be eligible to vote in the Gubernatorial Primary Election, residents must be registered by 4:30 p.m. on February 18, 2014.

2014 Primary Early Voting takes place from March 3 - March 15. 

Voting hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday - Saturday at Centennial Park & Recreation Center (Ice Rink), 2300 Old Glenview Road, Wilmette.  Check the Cook County Clerk's web site for other locations and additional information.  State law requires early voters to present a government-issued photo ID such as a passport, driver’s license, or military ID.  All Early Voting is conducted on touch screens.

Absentee Voting:

Voters who cannot vote at one of the County's sites can still vote absentee by mail.

Students who are registered to vote may sign up for the Cook County Clerk's Student Absentee Ballot Program. The application can be sent to the school address or home address for the parents to forward.

Voting at Age 17:

Beginning January 1, 2014, most Illinois 17-year-olds will be eligible to register and vote in a primary election – a first in our state’s history.

U.S. citizens who were born on or before Nov. 4, 1996 can register and vote in the March 18, 2014, Primary Election because they will turn 18 by the November 4, 2014, General Election.

This new law will let younger voters choose which candidates will be nominated to represent political parties on the November 4, 2014, General Election ballots.
