Voter registration deadline is Feb. 18

OTTAWA — The deadline to register to vote for the Tuesday, March 17, LaSalle County primary is Tuesday, Feb. 18, according to Lori Bongartz, LaSalle County clerk.

A U.S. citizen is eligible to register to vote if the citizen is at least 18 years old, or will become 18 years old on or before the date of the next election, and if the citizen has been a resident or will have been a resident of his or her precinct for 30 days before the date of the next election.

The citizen must provide two forms of identification: verification of name, and verification of address. The Illinois Election Code defines a resident as someone who has a permanent abode or dwelling within the precinct.
