The General Primary Election will be held on Tuesday, March 20, 2018. The following information and dates will help make the registration and voting process easier. Visit the Lake County Clerk's website for full registration and election information.
You may register to vote if you are a U.S. citizen, 18 years old at the time of the next election, and a resident of Lake County for 30 days prior to the election. Your registration must reflect your current, permanent address. If you have moved, even just across the street, make sure to re-register to vote. Registration ends on Tuesday, February 20, 2018. Check how and where you can register to vote here.
If you missed the registration deadline, or have changed your name or address and have not updated your information with the Lake County Clerk’s office by the close of registration, you may still register in person at the County Clerk’s Office. A voter who registers or changes address during this grace period must vote at the time of registration. Hours are Monday – Friday, 8:30 am – 5:00 pm. Beginning 15 days before Election Day, grace registration is available at any Early Voting Site. Grace registration is also available at your assigned Election Day voting site serving your current address. Two forms of ID are required, one of which must show your current address.
Any registered voter in Lake County may choose to vote early, and is required to present valid government-issued ID containing their photograph. Early voting runs through March 19. Log on to LakeVoterPower.info to confirm your voter registration status, and find the location and hours of your early voting site.
Registered voters may submit a request to have a ballot mailed to them. However, the ballot cannot be mailed before an official request is received by the Lake County Clerk’s office. To request a ballot by mail, contact the County Clerk at 847.377.2406, or visit their Voter Services page here.
