HILLSBORO — The Montgomery County Clerk’s office reminds voters that their voter registration information must be up-to-date to avoid problems or delays in voting in the Tuesday, March 19, general primary election.
The last day for registration or transfer of voter registration with all deputy registrars and with the County Clerk’s office is Tuesday, Feb. 20. Those Montgomery County residents who are at least 17 years old and who will become 18 years old on or before the Nov. 5 general election are also eligible to register to vote until the registration deadline and may vote at the March 19 general primary election.
Voters are reminded that they must completely re-register to vote if their name has changed or if they have moved to Montgomery County. Voters who have moved within the county and/or precinct can do this either by completing the voter transfer information on the back of their current voter’s identification card or by completing the voter address change form which can be downloaded and printed from the county website at www.montgomerycountyil.gov and providing either of these documents to the county clerk’s office in Hillsboro. Voter registration services can also be completed in person at the County Clerk’s office in Hillsboro.
