Voting in Illinois Just Got Easier

Posted by Admin On August - 7 - 2014

(Letters to Editors)

While some states are making it harder to vote, under Governor Quinn’s leadership, Illinois is making it easier than ever.

Here’s one big change you should know about: Illinois now has no-excuse absentee voting, so anyone can request a ballot and cast their vote by mail.

That means no more lines, and no more worrying about taking off work to get to the polls on Election Day.

If you want to vote by mail this year, you can request a ballot online — starting today. Just fill out an application here:


A few more things have changed for the better:

  • Early Vote hours and days have been extended, to give you more options to vote in person.
  • You will no longer be required to provide a photo ID in order to vote early.
  • And, for the first time ever, you can now register to vote or update your registration online.

Democracy works best when everyone takes part.

Be sure to let your friends and family know: This year, voting will be easier than ever.

It’s also more important than ever.

Sabey Abraham
Deputy Field Director
Quinn for Illinois
