LANSING, Ill. (June 26, 2022) – The June 28 Gubernatorial Primary election is on Tuesday, and Lansing residents will choose which candidates (compiled list) they want to see on the ballot for the November 8 General Election.
Unlike early voting, Election Day voting is available only at assigned polling places, from 6 a.m. – 7 p.m. Polling places in Lansing are:
- Bethel Church (3500 Glenwood-Lansing Road) — Bloom Township Precincts 5, 14, and 44
- Calvin Coolidge School (17845 Henry Street) — Thornton Township Precincts 16, 51, 56, and 65
- First Church PCA (3134 Ridge Road) — Thornton Township Precincts 43 and 47
- Lansing Police Department (2710 170th Street) — Thornton Township Precinct 17
- Lansing Public Library (2750 Indiana Avenue) — Thornton Township Precincts 18 and 68

- Reavis School (17121 Roy Street) — Thornton Township Precinct 13
Registered voters can determine the precinct they live in by checking their Voter ID Card or by using the Voter Information Tool on the Cook County Clerk’s website.
Voters who haven’t registered yet can use this Thornton Township map or this Bloom Township map to determine the precinct they live in. On Election Day, non-registered residents can register and vote at the same time. Two forms of identification are required for those registering to vote on Election Day, or for those who need to file an address change. Acceptable forms of ID are listed at cookcountyclerk.com.
What to bring when voting
Registered voters should not need any identification, as long as they vote at the correct precinct. However, if there is a question about someone’s registration, an election judge may ask for a form of identification, so it is advisable to bring some ID on Election Day.
