Voter Registration Deadline Approaching

By  | 

CHICAGO (AP) -- Tuesday is the deadline to register to vote for the March 18th primary.

This is also the first time that 17-year-old Illinoisans will be able to vote but they must be 18 by the Nov. 4 General Election to qualify.

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

Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn is seeking re-election. He faces a primary challenge from activist Tio Hardiman. Four Republicans are running. They are Treasurer Dan Rutherford, businessman Bruce Rauner, and Sens. Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady.
