Close of registration will be on Tuesday, February 16th.  Grace registration begins on February 17th and continues on Election Day.  Grace registration and voting is only conducted at the County Clerk’s Office.  Certain proofs may be needed so please contact the Clerk’s Office as to what you will need to bring in with you and as to who qualifies to register under Grace.

There are many methods to get registered to vote.  There are links to blank application forms and you may even be able to register online.  Go to the County Clerk’s website at for more information or call the Clerk’s Office.

Pursuant to Article 19A of the Illinois Election Code, Early Voting for the March 15th,  General Primary Election for all Christian County Precincts will be conducted at the Office of the Christian County Clerk on the second floor of the Courthouse located at 101 S.

Any validly registered voter of Christian County may vote during the early voting period after showing proper identification.  However, any vote cast is final and may not be revoked and the voter would not be eligible to cast a vote on Election Day.  Due to the late certification of the ballot by the state Board of Elections voting on paper ballots will begin Monday, February 8th.  Touchscreen voting will also be available at a later date—call the Clerk’s Office to confirm that Touchscreens are available if that is your preferred method of voting.
