If you want to particpate in the presidential primary and chime in on electrical aggregation in Frankfort, make sure you're registered to vote. The deadline to register to vote in the March 20 primary is Tuesday, Feb. 21.
To register, you'll need two forms of valid ID, such as a driver's license, utility bill, library card or other forms of identification.
So, where can you register? Any of the local places below, and also at the Will County Clerk's office, 302 N. Chicago St. in Joliet. Here's the local list:
- Village Administration offices
- Frankfort Township offices
- Frankfort Public Library
- Register online at the Will County Clerk's website.
Also, residents can begin early and absentee voting later this month. For village residents, early and absentee voting begins Feb. 28 and runs through March 15 at the Village Administration offices. For township residents, it begins Feb. 27 and runs through March 15. You must bring a government-issued photo ID to vote early or receive an absentee ballot.
Last year, voting precincts were consolidated in Will County, including Frankfort. To find where you vote and who's on your ballot, go to the County Clerk's precinct finder. You can also read Patch's coverage to get a rundown of who and what are on village, county, state and congressional ballots:
