Saturday will be the last day to both register and vote early in the city's runoff election.If you haven't registered to vote please make it a point to do so tomorrow and be prepared to make your choices as well. For those of you who haven't voted yet please do so on the final day of early voting or definitely do so on April 7th which is the runoff election day.
Langdon Neal, chairman of the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners, issued a reminder Friday that city residents can still register and vote, but same-day registration will not be available on Tuesday, when voters go to the polls to elect a mayor and 18 aldermen.
Similarly, absentee ballots must be postmarked no later than Monday. The city has sent out 54,541 absentee ballots, with the deadline to request one having passed....
Saturday will be the last day to vote at the city's 51 early voting sites: one in each ward and another at the board's main offices at 69 W. Washington Blvd. The sites will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Those who have not yet registered can still do so by presenting two forms of identification, at least one with the current address. Acceptable forms of ID include a driver's license, state ID, passport, pay stub, utility bill, bank statement, government check or some other form of government correspondence.
Voters who newly register, however, must vote at that time; they cannot opt to vote at the polls Tuesday.
The aforementioned article noted statistics about early voting in the city as a whole and in those 18 wards where Aldermanic candidates are facing runoffs.
