How to vote.

In a municipal election on an off-year with 12 candidates for three community college board 6-year term seats, your vote is very important!

Mail-in and early voting are still in place. If you are already registered to vote, you can go to the your polling place on Tuesday, February 23, 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. and, with your signature, you can vote. A photo I.D. is not necessary in Illinois. If your polling place cannot find your registration you will be given a provisional ballot. If you are not allowed to vote or you are asked for I.D., please call your voting authority office immediately, see below.

If you have not yet registered to vote, Illinois has same-day registration and voting but you must vote at the voting authority proper for your address. That office will be open 8am-5pm. Please get there by 4pm to complete the registration and voting. Bring two forms of I.D., one a state-issued identification or other having a photo. One has to have a present address. Library cards, electric bills, turn on her ID, anything is acceptable.If you live in the City of Rockford, your voting authority is the Rockford Board of Elections at 301 South Sixth Street at the corner of Sixth Street and 2nd Ave.

If you live outside the city limits of Rockford then your voting authority is the Winnebago County Clerk’s office at 404 Elm St Suite 104 in Rockford, Illinois. Elm Street starts at South Main Street.

If you live in Boone County, your voting authority is the Boone County Clerk’s office in Belvidere, Illinois.

If you live in Ogle County, Illinois, your voting authority is the Ogle County Clerk’s office, in Oregon, Illinois.

A tiny bit of eastern Stephenson County is in Community College District 511. If you live in Stephenson County, Illinois, your voting authority is the Stephenson County Clerk’s office in Freeport, Illinois.
