Illinois GOP: Last day to register to vote in Illinois, Tuesday, Oct. 9; Chicago Election Board will be OPEN from 9 a.m. to Midnight today

(From the ILGOP)
Today, Tuesday, October 9 is the last day to register to vote in Illinois.

If you aren’t currently registered, or you recently moved, please make sure to get your registration updated!

You can check your registration status here.

If you need to register, you can fill out the form here, print it out, and drop it off or mail it to your local election authority.

Find your local election authority here. If you mail it, it must be postmarked by Today, Tuesday, October 9!

There still is “grace period” registration after today until Nov. 3 but you must do that in person at your election authority office and vote at the same time. We urge you to register to vote today.

A press release from the Chicago Election Board follows:

The Chicago Election Board will be OPEN from 9 a.m. – midnight Tue., Oct. 9 at 69 W. Washington St. on the ground floor to accept voter registrations through the very end of the standard-registration deadline.

There was a steady flow with more than 500 forms submitted on Columbus Day. Many more thousands are arriving in the mail daily and from deputy registrars. The fill-in-the-blank form is here and can be delivered in person today — or submitted by mail if it has an Oct. 9 postmark.

By law, voters must submit original form with a ‘wet-ink’ signature — and cannot submit the form by email or fax.
After Tuesday, there will be the less-convenient option of grace-period registration from Oct. 10 through Nov. 3. During that grace period, prospective voters must come in person to the election authority and also cast their ballot during that same visit. Grace-period voters cannot use Early Voting, Absentee Voting or Voting in the Polling Place on Election Day.
