First Institute encourages all students to participate in the electoral process by registering to vote, and voting in every election. To expedite this process, voter registration forms for the State of Illinois are available to students by visiting Student Services. At orientation students receive a copy of the election schedule with registration deadlines and the Registering to Vote in Illinois pamphlet. You may also access voter registration forms from the Illinois State Board of Elections at https://ova.elections.il.gov/.
According to Illinois law, you must register to vote at least 28 days prior to each election to be eligible to vote in that election.
