Illinois Early Voting Period is Underway

Springfield (AP) – Those who want to get a jump on the November election need not wait. Early voting in Illinois begins Thursday across the state. But voters will have to visit their county clerk’s office or the office of their local election authority to do so. Those who aren’t registered to vote may join the rolls at the time they cast their ballot. Online voter registration is also available through the Illinois State Board of Elections through Oct. 21.
