You Can Still Register to Vote

The deadline to register in advance to vote has passed. However, if you are not registered, you still have options.

You can still participate during Grace Period registration through Oct. 19, at the Chicago Board of Elections, 69 W. Washington. Hours are 9-5, Monday through Saturday, and 9-3 on Sunday. You will need to vote immediately when you register.

From Oct. 20 through Nov. 1, all 51 early voting sites will also be open for Grace Period registration. That means you can register to vote, and vote, at any one of 51 early voting sites in Chicago. All sites are open 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Saturday, with some sites having extended night and Sunday hours.

You can go to any early voting site to register and vote. The 45th Ward site is at the 16th District Police Headquarters, 5151 N. Milwaukee. Other locations that might be convenient include: Roden Library, 6083 N. Northwest Hwy; North Park Village Administration Building, 5801 N. Pulaski; Independence Park Library, 3548 W.
