51 locations now open through April 1

Early Voting and In-Person Registration

Early Voting begins Mon., March 18 at 51 locations in Chicago, and each site also will offer voter-registration services.


Every site will be open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.


Voters don’t need a reason or excuse to use Early Voting. Chicago voters may use any Early Voting site in the city, regardless of where they live.


Election Board Chair Marisel A. Hernandez said that preliminary requests for Vote by Mail ballots indicate there will be even stronger interest in the April 2 Run-Off Elections than there was in the first round in February. “This is a short ballot with a big impact,” Hernandez said, noting that voters will see contests for Mayor and City Treasurer in all wards, and Alderman in only 15 of the city’s wards.


Voters who need to file a name or address change, or who need to register for the first time, will need to present two forms of ID, at least one of which shows the voter’s current address. Voters who register or file a name or address change must be ready to vote during that same visit.


For more information, Chicago voters may visit chicagoelections.com or call 312-269-7900 (312-269-0027 for the hearing impaired.


New this election: The 44th Ward site for Early Voting was relocated to the Dist. 19 Police Station at 850 W Addison due to renovation work at the previous site, Merlo Library.
