According to the Cook County Clerk’s office, voters “do not need to provide an excuse or reason why they cannot vote on Election Day” in order to vote early. Government ID cards are not required, but they may be helpful if questions about “registration, address or signature” arise. Voters may also expedite the process if they have ID cards available.

“You can register to vote at all early vote sites,” the Clerk’s office explained. “Any voter who needs to register for the first time or file an address change must present two forms of ID, one of which shows the voter’s current address.”
