TO REGISTER TO VOTE IN ILLINOIS YOU NEED TO:
- Be a United States Citizen.
- Be a resident of the jurisdiction at least 30 days prior to the election.
- Be 18 before the next general election (17 year olds can register and vote in the primary if they will be 18 before the Election Day).
That’s it! You can vote in Illinois regardless of previous criminal history, or if you’re lacking certain identification like a driver’s license.
