A guide to voter rights in Illinois. What you need to know before you cast a ballot – The State Journal-Register

EDITOR’S NOTE: This page is part of a comprehensive guide to state voting rights across the U.S. and in Puerto Rico.

Like many states, Illinois once required voters to provide a valid reason for requesting an absentee ballot, such as serving in the military or being out of state at the time of an election. But in recent years, the state expanded access to absentee ballots, so much so that the state no longer uses the term. This year, a new law for the first time is giving all voters the option of voting by mail on a permanent basis.
