1. Where do I register to vote?

Answer:
You can register to vote at your Circuit Clerk’s office, your Municipal Clerk’s office, when you get your driver’s license at the Department of Public Safety, or through the mail by downloading a voter registration form from our website and mailing it to your Circuit Clerk. Keep in mind that first time, mail-in, unverified registrants must show ID the first time they go to the polls.
