Grace-period voter registration to continue through election
GENEVA – State law has allowed an extension of grace-period voter registration through Election Day for the Nov. 4 election, the Kane County Clerk’s Office has announced.
This extension of grace-period registration applies only to that election until the polls close.
This means an unregistered qualified elector may register to vote, and a registered voter may submit a change of address form, in person at any permanent polling place for early voting established through the day of the election.
The state law also states registered, grace-period voters who want to vote must do so by grace-period voting.
Grace-period registration will begin Oct. 8 at the Kane County Clerk’s Office, Building B, at the Kane County Government Center, 719 S. Batavia Ave., Geneva. Two forms of current identification are required, and voters must vote after their registration is processed.
To register, a person must be a U.S. citizen, 18 on or before the date of the general election, a resident of the precinct for at least 30 days before the election and provide two forms of identification, one of which shows a current name and address.
Kane County residents may check their registration online by going to www.kanecountyelections.org and clicking on “Are you registered?” and following the prompts. For information, call 630-232-5990.
