Early voting expands to all of Chicago, suburban Cook County on Monday

CHICAGO (CBS)– Early voting expands to all of Chicago and suburban Cook County on Monday — with Illinois’ next election day just weeks away.

June 28 is primary election day, which would normally have taken place months ago in March. It’s been decades since the date was so late.

That’s thanks to a bill passed last year to push back the date.

Expanded early voting officially begins Monday morning and will run until June 28.

Some counties already started early voting in May, but as of Monday, all 50 wards and suburban Cook County are included.

If you haven’t yet registered to vote and still want to, each early voting site offers registration services. You just need two pieces of ID.

Advance polls open at 9 a.m. every day except Sunday at 10 a.m.

Lawmakers are concerned that residents may know this is happening and they are working to get the word out.

On Monday morning, Congressman Jesús “Chuy” García and 12 candidates in the 2022 primary election will hold an emergency press conference in Pilsen to get the word out to residents who may not be aware of the vote anticipated. They will address the public at 10:15 a.m.
