Early voting began on Oct. 24 and will continue until Nov. 7, the day before national elections.

NEIU’s El Centro campus is an early voting location and has been open since Oct. 24. Early voting and registration will open on Nov. 2 and end on Nov. 4 at NEIU’s main campus. Students can register and vote in the Student Union.

Citizens are welcome to visit any location that is convenient to their location to cast their early vote. Local residents of the 39th Ward can visit the North Park Village Administration Building located at 5801 N. Pulaski Rd. The polls opened on Oct. 24 and will continue until Nov. 7. Early voting locations are not the designated polling place for the presidential election on Nov. 8.

Illinois also provides election day registration at your local polling location. You will need to bring two forms of ID, one of which must be a picture ID. A complete list of acceptable forms of identification can be found at chicagoelections.com.  

Early voting is only done via electronic voting booths. Residents can find their nearest early-voting poll location and polling station for Election Day on Nov. 8 by visiting elections.il.gov.

Paper ballots will not be administered until Nov. 8.

For those who wish to vote via mail, applications must be mailed to the County Board of Elections or Board of Election Commissioners and received no later than Nov. 3 at 5 p.m. Voters do not need a reason to vote by mail. Applications must be requested via mail or online by visiting chicagoelections.com.

After receiving your ballot, it should be signed and sent no later than Nov. 8. You can also turn in your ballot in person to the County Board of Elections or Board of Election Commissioners. The office is located at 69 W. Washington St., Suite 600.
