Grace Period Registration and Voting: Suburban Cook County
October 8 – November 3, 2014

Grace period registration and voting extends the registration period by allowing voters to register and vote until the day before an election. It is also the only way to vote if you are not registered or if your voter registration is not up to date. However, guidelines limit when and where grace period registrants can vote. During grace period registration, voters must register and vote in person at one of the locations listed below.

Individuals wishing to vote during the grace period must bring two pieces of identification to register. Grace period registrants immediately cast their ballot after registering to vote.
