You may register to vote if:
- You are a United States citizen
- You are at least 18 years old on election day
- You have resided in your voting precinct for at least 30 days
You must register again if your name or permanent address has changed, or if you have not voted in the past four years. Voter registration requires two forms of identification, including one with a current address (new residents may use a utility bill, checkbook, etc.).
Online Voter Registration
Residents may register to vote online through the State Board of Elections website.
Current Registration Cards
Residents who move within a county and hold a current registration card can follow the instructions on the back of the card to complete the transaction by mail. If a card is not current or a person has changed their name by marriage, the change can be handled at the clerk's office.
New registrations and changes of address cannot be accepted by the City in the 28-day period before an election or during the two days immediately following an election. In order to register to vote within the 28-day period, you may participate in Grace Period registration where you will register to vote and cast your ballot at the same time. For more information on Grace Period voter registration, visit the Lake County Clerk's Office website

By registering, residents are eligible to vote in local, national, state, county, township and park and school district elections.
