Register to Vote
To be eligible to vote you must:
- Be 18 years or older
- Be a U.S Citizen
- Have lived in your election precinct for at least 30 days before election day
- Not claim the right to vote in more than one precinct
In Illinois, voters do not have to register with a party to vote in the primary, but they do have to choose, publicly, which party's ballot they will vote on at the primary election. This is called an open primary.
