Two weeks remain until Election Day 2022 when voters will cast ballots in local, state, and congressional races which could shake up majorities in Springfield and Washington.

Already Illinois voters are early voting but there also are other voting options whether in-person, vote-by-mail, or going to the polls on Election Day.

How do I register to vote?

For the next two weeks, voters can register in person through Election Day. Voters in Sangamon County can register or update their address at the county election office at 200 S. 9th St., Room 105.

Voters need to bring two forms of identification including one that shows a voter’s name and current address. The other option is a varied list that includes documents such as a driver’s license, credit card, or birth certificate.

Online voter registration is closed.
