National Voter Registration Day

National Voter Registration Day this year is Tuesday, September 27. Remember, democracy is not a spectator sport! The League encourages all eligible citizens to vote. The general election this year on November 8 will be very important. For more information, email or go to the Lake County Clerk's website.

Requirements to register: 

  • Be a United States citizen
  • Be at least 18 years of age on or before the next election (17-year-olds may register and vote in even-year primaries if 18th birthday occurs before date of general election)
  • Live in your election precinct at least 30 days immediately prior to an election
  • Not be convicted and in jail
  • Not claim the right to vote anywhere else

Two forms of identification are required to register through a deputy registrar:

  • At least one of the two forms must show your name and current address
  • Only one form of identification may be a piece of mail for a contractual service addressed and delivered to you
