Election Day is just four weeks from tomorrow, which means it's time to get registered to vote! Tomorrow is the state's 2010 deadline. Here's some information from last month's post about the process:
The first thing any potential voter must do is register. According to Illinois law, folks must sign up to vote at least 28 days before Election Day to participate. (This year, that date is October 5.) A registrant also has to be at least 18-years old, a U.S. citizen, and a resident of his or her precinct for at least 30 days prior to November 2. Forms are available at a variety of locations: the County Clerk's Office; the Board of Election Commissioner's Office; City, Township, and Village Offices; schools; and public libraries. The Illinois Board of Elections provides relevant information on its registration pamphlet (PDF).
If you're busy this week, Illinois does allow three weeks of grace period registration, as well. Find out more about that here.
