Oct. 5 Deadline to Register to Vote in IL

CHICAGO (AP) -- If you want to vote in the November election, you've got a few more days to get yourself registered.

The deadline to register is Tuesday, Oct. 5.

The Chicago Board of Election Commissioners is reminding people the deadline is for first-time voters and for people who need to change their address or update their names.

The Nov. 2 election is a big one with statewide elected offices on the ballot including governor and U.S. Senate.

To register to vote you have to be a U.S. citizen who will be at least 18 years old by Election Day.

People who miss the Oct. 5 voter registration deadline can still register during a grace period.

But Chicago officials say when voters do that they have to register in person at a designated location and cast their ballot that day and not on Election Day.
