Register to Vote

I’m qualified to vote! How do I register?

(Don’t forget to Choose a Plan to Vote after registering!)

You can register in three ways: in person, online, or by mail.

(You can even register at a polling place on Election Day, but please don’t wait!)

Register in person

You can register in person at local City, Village, or Township Halls in DuPage County or at the Election Division’s office as well as some local libraries. When registering, be sure to bring two forms of identification with you, one of which must have your correct address on it.

Register online (or update your information)

To apply online, you must be prepared to provide:

  • Your Illinois Drivers License number or Illinois Secretary of State issued State ID number.
  • Date the license or ID was issued.
  • The last four digits of your Social Security number.
  • Your birth date

Then go to the Illinois Online Voter Application.

DuPage County’s Register to Vote page also explains:

Register by mail

Not to be confused with voting by mail!

You can also register by mail using an approved registration application form. You may download one of these PDF forms for printing:

or you may contact the Election Division to have a form sent to you. Instructions are included on the form for where to mail it.

  • You must mail or deliver this form no later than 28 days before the next election.
  • If you do not receive a confirmation within four weeks of mailing or delivering this form, call the Election Division at (630) 407-5600.

I missed the 28-day registration deadline. What can I do?

Illinois law allows individuals unable to register to vote or who change their address prior to the 28-day deadline a “Grace Period” to register and vote.

To Grace Period register and vote, you must:

You may register to vote or transfer a registration during the Grace Period at any Early Voting Location until Monday, April 3rd (or Saturday, April 1st in some locations.

If none of the above work, please call the DuPage County Clerk at:

8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Monday thru Friday

None of the automated phone menu options apply; press “0” (zero) to talk to someone. You’ll need to give your name, address, and date of birth.
