Voter registration, election deadlines loom

Published: Monday, April 1, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

SYCAMORE – DeKalb County Clerk John Acardo is reminding voters of several deadlines within the next week related to the April 9 election.

Thursday is the last day to apply for an absentee ballot by mail. Saturday is the last day for early voting and grace period voting and registration, and April 8 is the last day to postmark an absentee ballot.

For grace period voting and registration, voters can register with valid photo identification at the DeKalb County Legislative Center at 200 N. Main St. in Sycamore and the NIU campus locations, but they must cast their ballot at the time of registration.

To register, voters need to present two forms of identification, one of which must include their current address. By state law, all registered voters must present valid government-issued photo identification to vote during this traditional early voting period.

On April 9, polling locations will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
