Administration : FAQ
- How do I register to vote?
You may register in the Village Clerk’s office on the second floor of
the Village Hall, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to Noon, and 1:00
p.m. to 5:00 p.m. You may also register by mail or in person at the
Cook County Clerk’s Office, 69 W. Washington, 5th Floor, Chicago, Illinois
60602; in person at the mini-center located in the Skokie Court Building,
5600 W. Old Orchard Road, Room 149, Skokie, Illinois; or at a Secretary of
State’s driver’s license facility at the time you apply for or
update your driver’s license.
Two forms of identification must be furnished in order to register, and at
least one must show your current Winnetka address.
Please note that registration is closed by State Statute 28 days prior to
Election Day and does not reopen until two days after an election.
- Do I need to register to vote if I only move within the Village?
Whether you are a new resident to our Village or you just have a
new address within the Village, you must change your voter registration.
- How do I vote absentee?
You may obtain an absentee ballot application from the Village Clerk’s
office approximately six weeks prior to Election Day. Once completed,
this application form needs to be returned to the Cook County Clerk. The Cook County Clerk's office
will mail an absentee ballot to the individual and address noted on the
form. The ballot then must be returned to Cook County for processing.
- What is Early Voting?
To make voting more convenient, Illinois voters can now cast their ballots before Election Day at
designated locations without having to provide a reason or excuse. Dates and locations for Early Voting can be found on the
Cook County Clerk's website: voterinfonet.com.
