Illinois voters head to the polls today

DeKalb County Clerk and Recorder Doug Johnson is overseeing 42 polling places that serve 90 precincts throughout DeKalb County today.

About 57,903 voters are registered in DeKalb County, and the polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., with election judges allowing those in line to vote by 7 p.m. to cast ballots.

Here are some questions local voters typically have:

Am I registered?

Residents can find out whether they are registered to vote in their precinct through the Integra Election Reporting Console online at Users can enter their name and birthdate when prompted to find out if they are a registered voter and the polling location.

If voters are told their names are not on file at their polling place, they still have the opportunity to vote.

Depending on the situation, Johnson said people can vote provisionally and present proof of registration to the county clerk’s office within three days for their vote to count.

Voters also can call 815-895-7147 until 9 p.m. if they have additional questions.

Where can I vote?

All 90 precincts in DeKalb County have designated polling locations. Unlike with early voting, voters must vote at their assigned polling place today. Two new polling places are open: Precincts that previously voted at the campus recreation center will go to the Barsema Alumni Visitor Center, 231 N. Annie Glidden Road in DeKalb, and those who previously voted at the Cortland Township Building will go to the Cortland Lions Den, 70 S. Llanos St. in Cortland.

Voters can find their polling place online through Integra Election Reporting Console at

What do I bring?

On Election Day, all you need is your signature.

Although no tangible form of identification is required to vote today, voters might want to bring some form of identification with their name and residence listed in case they are challenged by a pollwatcher.

For whom can I vote?

Sample ballots are available online through Integra Election Reporting Console at, and at each polling facility.
