PITTSFIELD, Ill. (WGEM) -- Registration deadlines are approaching for the Illinois Consolidated Election on April 6.
Pike County Clerk Natalie Roseberry said March 9th is the deadline for early registration.
"We would like for people to know that if you really want your voice heard, this is a really important election to advocate for that because you're voting here, your vote stays here, your vote is counted here," Roseberry said.
In case you miss it, she says grace period voting is March 10th until election day and you have to register to vote, and then vote, on the same day at the county clerk's office.
"March 10th or after, you have to register and vote on the same day that goes all the way up through the day before elections and election day. Election day you can grace period vote in the office of your county clerk," Roseberry said.
Roseberry said if you register on April 6th, you can not grace period vote at your precinct, you have to vote at the county clerk's office.
She said to bring your state issued ID and a proof of residence, like a utility bill when you go to vote.
Voters in Missouri will also head to the polls on April 6 and the deadline to register is March 10.
Missouri does not have same-day registration, meaning if you are not registered by March 10, you cannot vote in the upcoming election.
