Unregistered Illinois Voters Given "Grace Period" to Still Register

By  | 

CHICAGO (AP) -- It's not too late for Illinois residents to register to vote in this year's upcoming elections.

The deadline for regular registration came and passed on Tuesday. But now voters are getting a second chance. This "grace period" for voter registration is open until Mar. 15.

The process will be a little different for those registering late. Residents must present two forms of identification to election officials in person. One of these forms must include a current address. People using the grace period must cast their primary election ballot during the same visit.

The primary election is about a month away on Mar. 18.
