With the April 6 local election quickly approaching, now is the time to check and make sure that you are registered to vote.

Throughout the month of March, the Wheaton League of Women Voters will host eight outdoor, walk-up voter registration events for you to get help registering to vote.


Volunteers can help you register to vote, check your registration status, or request a Vote-by-Mail ballot using your own tablet or smartphone device. Please bring two forms of ID (one with your current address) to register to vote. Have you moved or changed your name since the last time you voted? They can help you with that, too.

For those who have recently turned age 18, you can celebrate by becoming a first-time voter! The local elections are a great time to vote as a first-time voter because you are making a big impact right in your own backyard.

Masks are required. All volunteers will be wearing masks and following social distancing guidelines. Hand sanitizer will be provided.
