It's Election Day. Go Vote!

Election day is here! Do you know where to cast your vote?

Cook County Clerk David Orr says it is especially important for suburban voters to double check the location of their polling place before heading out to vote due to changes under the remap.

"With redistricting came some polling place changes, so make sure you review your new voter registration card or check your precinct information online," Orr said.

Voters from across the state can find their proper voting registration and polling place information here via the State Board of Elections web site. Suburban Cook County voters can find their polling place information here.

Orr offered some other reminders to voters about casting their votes on election day:

  • Polling places are least crowded between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
  • Anyone in line when polls close at 7 p.m. will be allowed to vote.
  • Voters will have a choice of voting on a touch screen or with a paper ballot.
  • Any voter who voted during Early Voting or by mail ballot cannot vote on Election Day.

Polling places are open from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. this evening.
