Registration applications can be found at cookcountyclerk.com. Voters who have recently moved or changed their name must re-register before the deadline.

Completed applications should be mailed or delivered to the Cook County Clerk's office, 69 W. Washington St., 5th Floor, Chicago, IL 60602. Applications must be delivered or postmarked by March 12.

Anyone wishing to register in person can visit the clerk's office downtown, their municipal or township office, or one of the clerk's offices located at the five suburban Cook County courthouses, including 2121 Euclid Ave., Room 238, Rolling Meadows, and 5600 W. Old Orchard Road, Room 149, Skokie.

Applicants should bring two pieces of identification, including one showing a current address. To qualify to vote, a person must be a United States citizen, at least 18 years old by Election Day (April 9) and a resident of his or her precinct for at least 30 days prior to the election.

Anyone who misses tomorrow's deadline will still be able to register during the grace period from March 13-April 6. During the grace period, applicants must register at specific locations: the clerk's downtown office, five suburban courthouse offices, Chicago Heights Village Hall or Niles Village Hall.
