KANE COUNTY—Kane County Clerk John A. Cunningham is reminding Kane County residents that Tuesday, Feb. 21, is the last day to register to vote for the March 20 general primary.

The County Clerk’s office is open for registration, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Most libraries, municipal and township offices in Kane County will accept registrations until Feb. 21.

“Grace period” registration is an extension of the period of time for a voter to register, or to update their registration information. Once registered, the voter may cast a ballot during the grace period at the Kane County Clerk’s Office only, from Wednesday, Feb. 22, to Tuesday, March 13. Two forms of current identification are required.

Registration will resume on Thursday, March 22.

The Kane County Clerk’s Voter Registration Office is located in Building B at the Kane County Government Center, 719 S. Batavia Ave. (Route 31) in Geneva. To register, a person must be a United States citizen, 18 years old on or before the date of the election, a resident of the precinct for 30 days prior to the election, and provide two forms of identification—one of which shows their current name and address.

Kane County residents may check their registration online by going to, clicking the “Are you registered?” tab and following the directions on the page.
