A sign with an arrow that reads "Early Voting Entrance."

Election season is upon us, and Illinois residents will have the opportunity to participate in the Presidential Primary Election on Tuesday, March 19. When voting questions arise, it is important to get answers from quality sources, and the library is available to assist residents in finding answers to their voting questions. 

Many voter questions can be answered by the Cook County Clerk’s website. This site is the best source for key voting information. Visit the Cook County Clerk’s website to:  

  • Determine if you are registered to vote. 
  • Obtain a sample ballot 
  • Find your polling place 

The Research Desk at the main branch can help with accessing any of the information from the Cook County Clerk’s office or to assist patrons with completing online voter registration

Early voting 

Mount Prospect voters can vote early at Village Hall from Monday, March 4 through Monday, March 18. Cook County residents may vote early at any Cook County designated Early Voting site prior to Election Day. If you’re not registered to vote, you can register and vote on the same day – just bring two pieces of identification with proof of your current residence to any suburban Cook County Early Voting site.   

Be an informed voter 

MPPL card holders have online access to national and local newspapers to find endorsements and read up on election coverage, including: 

Daily Herald 
Chicago Tribune

Additional resources for researching the candidates and fact-checking news stories can be found on Mount Prospect Public Library’s Voter Resource Guide. For help accessing any of these resources, stop by the Research Desk at the library, or contact us to request a reference appointment.
