Voters in Will County who do not want to make the trip to Joliet to cast their ballots early for the March 20 general primary election will have other options starting March 5.
Several early voting sites will be open throughout Will County. Each site has different dates and times, so you can visit the Will County Clerk’s website for locations, hours, resident restrictions and directions, or refer to the voter information guide sent out via mail.
The Will County Clerk’s Office will also have grace period registration and voting available. This allows nonregistered Will County residents to register or update their address and vote.
Two forms of identification are required to register. You can look up dates and times for grace period registration and voting at the clerk’s website.
The clerk’s office also announced that county residents who visited the Department of Motor Vehicles after Feb. 20 will not have their automatic voter’s registration processed until after the primary, so they should be sure to register online or at the clerk’s office, 302 N. Chicago St., Joliet. The National Voter Registration Act requires the DMV to continue taking registrations even after the deadline of Feb. 20.
Will County residents who wish to vote on Election Day can visit the Will County Clerk’s website and select the “Register to Vote” quick link. Voters can also get information on grace period registration and voting, online registration through March 4 or same-day registration at a polling place on Election Day.
