What is the deadline for voter registration in the state of Illinois?

While you can register to vote at any time, you must be registered to vote at least twenty-seven (27) days prior to the date of the election. Your voter registration application must be received or postmarked no later than this deadline. However, there is a grace period during which you can still register to vote in an upcoming election at the office of the election authority, which extends your time to register up until fourteen (14) days prior to the date of the election. Registering during the grace period allows you to vote at a specially designated polling place, at the election authority’s office, or by mail, at the discretion of the election authority.
