A LOT OF QUESTIONS USUALLY POP UP ON ELECTION DAY. HERE’S SOME OF THE ANSWERS.

 

DON’T WORRY IF YOU’RE THE ULTIMATE PROCRASTINATOR…YOU CAN STILL REGISTER TO VOTE...RIGHT AT THE POLLS SAYS STATE BOARD OF ELECTIONS SPOKESPERSON MATT DIETRICH.

ADDITIONALLY, IF YOU REQUESTED A MAIL-IN BALLOT, DON’T TRY TO VOTE AGAIN AT THE POLLS. EITHER GET THE BALLOT IN THE MAIL RIGHT AWAY OR BRING IT TO YOUR LOCAL POLLING PLACE IF YOU DECIDE TO VOTE IN PERSON INSTEAD.

 

YES, YOU CAN STILL REGISTER TO VOTE, JUST BRING TWO FORMS OF I-D, AND YES YOU CAN UNDERVOTE IF YOU WANT TO SKIP CHOOSING A CANDIDATE IN A CERTAIN RACE. ADDITIONALLY, IT’S ALSO OKAY TO TAKE A SELFIE, SO LONG AS YOUR PIC DOESN’T INCLUDED YOUR COMPLETED BALLOT SAYS STATE BOARD OF ELECTIONS SPOKESPERSON MATT DIETRICH.

DIETRICH SAYS THE BALLOT CAN’T BE IN THE PHOTO SINCE IT COULD BE OFFERED AS PROOF OF VOTING A CERTAIN WAY IN EXCHANGE FOR MONEY. FIND YOUR LOCAL POLLING PLACE AND ELECTION DAY INFORMATION ONLINE AT: ELECTIONS DOT IL DOT GOV.
