REALTORS® can prepare for the March 17 Illinois General Primary by visiting the Illinois State Board of Elections website for general explanations of statewide election processes and links to specific local information.

For example, the site provides details about voter registration, online voting and early voting as well as deadlines for candidates, campaign coordinators and individual voters.

Users can check their registration status online, vote online and pinpoint their local election authorities to determine the location of their polling places or to identify procedures for using mail-in ballots.

Make sure you’re ready to participate in the primary on Tuesday, March 17 and then the general election on Tuesday, Nov. 3.
