Yes, Same-Day Voter Registration Is A Thing

voter-registrationJust a reminder that in Illinois, if you meant to register but weren’t able to get it done, you’re still okay.  Yes, even today, Election Day.

Go to your polling place with two forms of ID, at least one of which shows your current residence address (more details here).  They should have a table set up specifically for same-day registration and other technical issues.

(NOTE: Just to be clear, as a rule you don’t need ID to vote, but REGISTERING to vote is a little different and does require proof of identity.)
