What to bring when voting

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 — and one of those ID documents must include a current address.

Acceptable forms of ID are listed below:

  • Passport or Military ID
  • Driver’s License or State ID card
  • College/University/School/Work ID
  • Vehicle registration card
  • Lease, mortgage or deed to home
  • Credit or debit card
  • Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid card
  • Insurance card
  • Civic, union or professional membership card
  • LINK/Public Aid/Department of Human Services card
  • Illinois FOID card

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.
