Voter Registration Deadline Nears

Sep 18, 2012

The traditional deadline for registering to vote in this November's General Election is approaching.

Williamson County Clerk Saundra Jent says the deadline is October 9th. But she says those who miss this deadline can register during Grace Period Registration that runs until November 3rd. Grace Period registration must occur at the county clerk's office and those wishing to vote in the General Election must do so at the time of registration. Voters are able to check their registration online by going to the Illinois State Board of Elections website and clicking "Voters" and then "Am I registered to Vote in Illinois."
