SYCAMORE – Today is the last day to register to vote in the April 9 election, but voters can register and vote at the same time starting Wednesday.

Grace-period registration and voting, in which residents fill out registration documents and complete the ballot during the same visit, starts Wednesday and continues through noon April 6, DeKalb County Clerk John Acardo said in a news release.

Grace-period voting and registration will be available at the county Legislative Center, 200 N. Main St., Sycamore, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays; from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursdays; and from 9 a.m. to noon Saturdays.

Starting March 25, grace-period voting and registration will be available at the Homes Student Center on the Northern Illinois University campus. It will be in the Blackhawk Annex, near the Food Court.

To register, residents need two forms of identification showing they live in DeKalb County, although they don’t need to be photo IDs, Acardo said. For information, see www.votedekalb.com or call 815-895-7147.
