Voters can start going to the polls to cast their ballots ahead of the upcoming April 4 election, starting March 20, the date when early voting begins in Cook County. The early voting period lasts through April 3. 

Residents can go to Oak Park Village Hall, 123 Madison St. in Oak Park, to cast their ballots early. Throughout the early voting period, village hall will be open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Saturdays, March 25 and April 1, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Village hall will also be a site for grace period registration, held from March 20 to April 3, which allows eligible voters an opportunity to register and vote up until the Monday before an election, according to the Cook County Clerk’s Office. 

“Individuals wishing to vote during the grace period must bring two pieces of identification to register,” according to the Clerk’s Office. “Grace period registrants immediately cast their ballot after registering to vote.”
