If you haven’t yet registered to vote, get it off your to-do list now.
Today is National Voter Registration Day, and thousands of local, state and national organizations have mobilized to make sure millions of people don’t miss the chance to cast their vote in this year’s elections.
Six million people didn’t vote in the 2008 elections because they either did not know how to register or because they missed the voter registration deadline.
The voter registration deadline for Illinois is Oct. 9.
Here’s information on how you can register in time for the Nov. 6 elections:
- Fill out a voter registration form in person at your several county and town government agencies.
- Download a voter registration form from the Board of Elections website and mail it to the county clerk's office.
