Voting and Elections


Illinois Voter Guide

The League is pleased to announce the launch of the Illinois Voter Guide , an online resource to help voters learn about the candidates and referenda on their own particular ballot. They need only enter their street address. With information gathered from candidate websites, endorsing organizations, newspapers, and local League questionnaires, the Illinois Voter Guide is a great nonpartisan tool to help people cast an informed vote. Click on the link above and sign up to be notified when the site is live.

Online Voter Registration

  • Visit https://ova.elections.il.gov to register online. Eligible Illinoisans can now register to vote and update their voter registration online if they have an Illinois driver’s license or state identification card.
