Voting and Elections
Did you Know? In Illinois, Seventeen-year-olds in Illinois will be able to vote in primary elections if their 18th birthday falls on or before the date of the next general election. See Public Act 098-0051, effective date January 1, 2014. Also, qualified Illinois citizens are now able to register to vote online, making Illinois the 18th state in the nation to provide for a paperless registration process. See Sec. 1A-16.5 of Public Act 098-0115, which took effect on becoming law on July 27, 2013.
