The Village Clerk is a registrar for voters and the local election authority. Under state law, an individual must be registered to vote at least one month prior to the date of the election to be eligible to participate. Registration information must be transferred to the new address if a registered resident moves within Oak Park.
Residents can register to vote in local, state and federal elections during regular business hours, 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, in Oak Park Village Hall, 123 Madison St . Voter registration requires two types of identification, at least one with the current address. A driver's license or picture ID is preferred, along with an additional item such as a lease or utility bill.
More information about elections, voter registration, absentee voting, filing for candidacy for local office and the electoral process are available from the Cook County Clerk at www.cookcountyclerk.com.
