ALSIP-CRESTWOOD, IL — If you’re going to be out of town or can’t handle the pressure of voting on election day—April 6—early voting is now in effect for suburban Cook County voters.

Early voting will take place from March 22 through April 5. Voters do not need to give a reason why they cannot make it to the polls on Election Day. They only need to fill out an application at the early voting site.

State laws require early voters to provide a valid photo ID to an election official before receiving a ballot to vote early. Valid forms of ID include a current driver’s license, a driver’s license of state ID, university/college ID or another government-issued ID with a photo, such as a passport.
