CITY CLERK’S OFFICE SERVING THE VOTERS
City Clerk Henneman is reminding resident’s that the Administrative Services Department at City Hall will be open on Saturday, March 5, 2011 between 9:00 a.m. and noon for voter registration services.

Registrants need to provide two forms of identification: one piece needs to have the current address of the registrant, although neither needs to be a picture i.d.
Once again, City Hall will serve as an Early Voting site March 14 through March 31, Monday through Saturday, 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Any person who is registered to vote and lives in suburban Cook County can cast their ballot at City Hall.
