Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is reminding voters of some basic rights ahead of Tuesday's election.
Madigan says voters have the right to vote if they are in line when the polls close at 7 p.m.
If a voter makes a mistake or spoils a paper ballot and the voter hasn't cast the ballot, the voter has the right to a replacement ballot. More information is available at the states's voting guide site.
Voters have the right to take unpaid time from work to vote — up to two successive hours — as long as they've applied with their employer before Election Day. The employer may choose the time of day.
The attorney general's office has announced they'll have 173 teams of assistant attorneys general and investigators throughout the state on Election Day to monitor the polls.
