Preparing for the November 2016 Election

Are you properly prepared to vote in the November 8 General Election?  The good news is that its early enough to make sure that you are ready. Perhaps you moved this year.  Make sure you re-register at your new address.  Did you get married or change your name?  You will need to update your information.  Are you escaping to the south for the winter, going on vacation, or prefer not to wait in any long lines to vote?  Request an absentee ballot today online  or download an application.  It's easy and convenient. 

The Cook County Clerk's website lets you get everything done so that you can participate in the November election without missing a beat.  Visit the Cook County Clerk's website at www.cookcountyclerk.com to check your voter registration, register to vote, update your name or address, request an absentee ballot application, look up a sample ballot, find your polling location, and more.  

Early Voting will be available at Niles Village Hall (1000 Civic Center Drive) or at the Des Plaines Library (1501 Ellinwood) starting October 24 through November 7.
