Early Voting Begins Today in Wilmette

Here's where you can cast your ballot early, to avoid the rush on Election Day. You don't need an excuse--anyone can do it.

If you don't want to wait until Election Day, Nov. 6, to cast your ballot in the presidential election, you don't have to.

In Cook County, early voting starts today and continues through Nov. 3. 

Anyone can vote early, and you don't need to give a reason. So if you have to work on election day, or just want to get it out of the way, you can head to the polls now.

You need to bring a photo ID, such as a driver's license, state-issued ID card or university ID card with you in order to vote.

You can vote at any early voting location in the county. The nearest are:

  • Community Recreation Center, 3000 Glenview Road, Wilmette. Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Evanston Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave., Evanston. Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
