Local elections for city council, school board and Evanston township are coming up April 9, but its not too late to register to vote.
The League of Women Voters will be holding a voter registration drive from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 9, at the Evanston Public Library.
Residents who are U.S. citizens and will be 18 years old by April 9, 2013, are eligible to register, and should bring two forms of identification, according to the city website. Both must have a name, and at least one must have an address.
Acceptable forms of identification include a driver’s license, an Illinois state ID, a student ID, a work ID, a utility bill with name and address on it or a passport. A photo ID is not necessary.
Residents can see whether they're registered to vote by entering their name and zip code on the Illinois State Board of Elections website. They can also register to vote online, by mail, at one of the Cook County Circuit Clerk suburban locations, at the Evanston city clerk's office or at one of several Illinois Secretary of State driver's license facilities.
