Don't forget -- your state may have additional ID requirements when you go to the polls.
Generally, identification is not required to vote at the polls.
First-time voters who registered by mail may need to show one of the following: Current and valid photo identification, Utility bill, Government check, Paycheck, or Government document with the voter's name and address. Voters who vote during the early voting period must provide a valid photo identification.
Valid forms of ID for Early Voting are: an Illinois driver's license, a non-driver's ID card issued by the Illinois Secretary of State, a photo ID card issued by a university or college, or another government-issued identification document containing the applicant's photograph.
In Illinois, you don't have to wait until Election Day to vote. You can skip Election Day lines and vote early at a time that's convenient for you.
