Early Voting in Will County will expand to 25 locations on Monday, March 20, and will include weekend and evening hours at many of these locations starting on March 27. Early Voting at the Will County Clerk’s Office in Joliet began on February 23 and will continue through Monday, April 3.

For residents who have not yet registered to vote or need to change their address, Grace Period Registration and Voting is available at Early Voting locations in Will County if they bring two forms of identification, one of which must show their address. Voters must register and cast their ballot during that visit. A complete list of Early Voting locations and hours as well as Grace Period registration requirements can be found online by visiting and clicking on Early Voting.

In Kankakee County, residents can access sample ballots on the voter information portal at early next week. Those who have questions about the voting process can call the County Clerk’s office at 815-937-2990.
