Have your recently moved into Park Ridge or will you be turning 18 years old before the November 2020 General election?  If you answered yes to either of these questions, have you registered to vote? 

To register to vote, you must be a U.S. citizen; be at east 18 years old by the general election; and be a resident of your precinct at least 30 days prior to Election Day.  When registering to vote, you also must display two pieces of identification, neither of which needs to be a photo ID, but one must include your current address.

In Illinois, you do not declare affiliation with a political party when you register to vote. In primary elections, you must choose to vote a specific political party ballot.
