Early Voting Now Open at Morton Civic Center
Early Voting has begun for the November 6, 2012 General Election and runs through November 3, 2012. A large voter turnout marked the first day of Early Voting at the Lorraine H. Morton Civic Center as scores of Evanstonians lined up to cast their votes early.
Evanston registered voters can now participate in Early Voting at the Lorraine H. Morton Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave. The hours of Early Voting are Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
State law requires early voters to display valid photo identification to an election official before receiving a ballot to vote early. Valid forms of ID include: a current driver’s license, state-issued ID card, university/college ID or another government-issued ID with a photograph.
Absentee voting, in person or voting by mail, is also available to all registered voters and runs through November 5, 2012.
Although the traditional voter registration deadline has passed for the General Election, eligible voters may register or change their address during the Grace Period Registration period, which runs through November 3, 2012. Those who participate in Grace Period Registration must vote at the Cook County Clerk’s downtown Chicago Office or at one of the five suburban courthouse locations (for Evanston voters, the nearest location is the Skokie Courthouse, 5600 W. Old Orchard Rd. in Skokie). Click here for other locations>>>.
