Early Voting

Early Voting in Chicago is tentatively scheduled to start on Thursday, September 26 at the Voting Supersite (191 N. Clark) and Board Offices (69 W. Washington St. - 6th Floor).

Early Voting in all 50 Wards of Chicago begins Monday, October 21 at 9:00am.

Any voter in Chicago can vote at any Early Voting site, no matter where they live in the city. Voters can choose whatever voting site is most convenient for them, including on Election Day.

All Early Voting locations are ADA-compliant and fully accessible to voters with disabilities.

Any ballots that voters cast in Early Voting are final. After casting ballots in Early Voting, voters may not return to amend, change or undo a ballot for any reason. It is a felony to vote more than once -- or to attempt to vote more than once -- in the same election.

Government-issued photo ID is not required but ID is helpful if there is a question about the voter's registration, address, signature, or if there are two voters at the same address with the same names or similar names.


College/University Early Voting Program

The College/University Early Voting Program establishes temporary additional Early Voting locations for a three-day period on both private and public college and university campuses.

By bringing the polls directly to campuses, the aim of this program is to make the voting experience more convenient and accessible for students and their surrounding community, emphasizing the significance of each individual's vote and voice in shaping the future. 

These temporary Early Voting locations must be open to all eligible voters, per election law. Dates and hours for these temporary college/university locations will be posted with all Early Voting materials and information.
