Voter registration in Illinois ends today but anyone not registered can vote during the "grace period" that starts Wednesday and runs until Nov. 3.

During the grace period members of the public can register to vote or update their registration period at their county clerk's office. Once the voter has registered or updated their information they must cast their ballot at that time.

To register to vote, you must have two forms of identification. One form must show your name and one form of must show your name and permanent residence address.

Election day is Nov. 6. For more information about how to vote or register, contact the Rock Island County Clerk's elections department at (309) 558-3571.
