If you're living in Chicago and didn't make it in time to register to vote for the February 22 elections don't fret. The January 25 deadline to register has passed, but the Chicago Board of Elections (CBOE) is now offering a grace period in which people who missed the first deadline can head down to the CBOE headquarters and register.
And while traditionally, those who register during the grace period are asked to vote on the spot, this year they will be given an absentee ballot due to the uncertainty of the mayoral ballot. Grace period registration continues through February 15 at the CBOE headquarters at 69 W. Washington St. in Chicago. For more information about the candidates check out our mayoral and aldermanic trackers.
