Vote Early for the Chicago Municipal Elections

February 6, 2023

The Chicago municipal elections will be held on February 28. We encourage all eligible students to exercise their right to participate in the U.S.’s democratic process by voting.

For all elections, University of Chicago students can vote in Illinois or in their home state. UChicago partners with TurboVote, a non-partisan platform which assists students registering to vote, requesting absentee ballots, and voting by mail. Visit for more information.

This election, UChicago will host an early voting location inside Reynolds Club, February 22 - 24, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Voters can register and vote on the same day, regardless of their precinct or ward.

Additional information to register in Cook County, Illinois is available on the Cook County Clerk’s Office website.
