Election Information
Early Voting starts Monday, March 3

Early voting will begin on Monday, March 3 for the March 18, 2014 Gubernatorial Primary Election, Cook County Clerk David Orr announced Friday.

Nearly 500 candidates are on the ballot for 369 races in Cook County, which include primaries for U.S. Senator and Illinois Governor, countywide offices, judges and township committeemen. There are also a handful of local referenda on the ballot.

Voters do not register by party in Illinois, but voters must choose a party when casting a ballot in a primary election.

There are 42 suburban Cook County early voting locations, plus the Clerk’s downtown office. All sites are open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Many locations are also open on Saturday, and a handful are open on Sundays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Early voting ends March 15.

State law requires early voters to display valid identification to an election official before receiving a ballot to vote early. Valid forms of ID include: a current driver’s license, state-issued ID card or another government-issued ID with a photograph.

A complete candidate list, referenda questions and write-in candidates are available on the clerk’s website. A map of Early Voting locations can be found on the Elections Page of the website.

Voting by mail is another convenient way to vote before Election Day. Apply online or via a mobile device for a mail ballot and vote from home. The last day to request a mail ballot is March 13. After voting, you must mail your ballot. To be counted, mail ballots must be postmarked by March 17.
