Registering to Vote

Voters living in Northbrook must register to vote with the Cook County Clerk’s Office.  

There are four ways to register to vote:

  1. Register at Village Hall. Voter registration forms are available at Village Hall, 1225 Cedar, and can be filled out during regular business hours. (For the March 17, 2020 election, the last day to register by paper application is Tuesday, February 18, 2020).
  2. Register online. Visit the Cook County Clerk’s Office website. 
  3. Grace Period Registration. Grace period registration and voting extends the registration and voting period to the Monday before an election. Guidelines limit when and where grace period registrants can vote.
  4. Election Day Registration. On Election Day, voters who are not registered to vote can register and vote at their home precinct only. Voters planning to register to vote or update their address on Election Day MUST bring two pieces of identification to register, one with a current address.
