CHICAGO (AP) -- Any Illinoisan who's not registered to vote had better hurry if they want to cast a ballot in the March 18 primary elections.

Tuesday is the deadline.

Voters will have a chance to vote for their party's nomination for governor, among other statewide elected offices.

This is the first year that 17-year-olds will be able to vote. They must be 18 by the Nov. 4 General Election to qualify.

Cook County Clerk David Orr says nearly a thousand 17-year-olds have registered to vote in Cook County alone.

Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn is seeking re-election. He faces a primary challenge from activist Tio Hardiman.

Four Republicans are running for their party's gubernatorial nomination. They are Treasurer Dan Rutherford, businessman Bruce Rauner and state Sens. Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady.
