Illini Vote

Illini Vote, made up of community partners, students, administrators, faculty, and more, is here to support you in the process of becoming an engaged Illini. The core tenets of Illini Vote are Register, Research, and Vote. These key principles encompass the following:

  • Register
  • Research
  • Vote

  1. Register: Get registered to vote and be familiar with how to update your voter registration if you relocate.
  2. Research: Learn about the candidates and issues so that when you arrive at your polling place on election day, you feel confident that your vote is representative of your values.
  3. Vote: Show up to your polling place, submit a mail-in ballot, or participate in early voting; regardless of what works for you, get out to vote!

Our website features guidance on how to Register, Research, and Vote, in addition to answers to frequently asked questions and additional resources. But if you don’t find what you are looking for, we are always available to help at
