On March 17, Illinois voters will head to the polls to vote in the Democratic or Republican primaries. They will choose a candidate for president, U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives and the Illinois Legislature. City residents will also vote in local races.
This helpful illustration, created by voting rights activist Louisa Richardson-Deppe and journalist and illustrator Ellie Mejía, explains how to register to vote, voting in person, how to use a touch screen or a paper ballot, and accessibility at the polls.
For even more information, like how to know if you’re registered, what identification you need to bring with you when you vote, and whether or not you can take a selfie as you cast your ballot, read our Q & A on voting in the March 17 primary.
And for information on who’s running, read candidate questionnaires on the Chicago Sun-Times voting guide.
