Last chance for voter registration!

Qualified voters who live in Illinois and have not yet registered to vote in the upcoming General Election on Tuesday, November 8, have two opportunities to register on campus before the October 11 deadline. 

Associate Director of the Master of Liberal Studies Program Carol Gayle and Associate Professor of Politics Jim Marquardt, both Illinois deputy voter registrars, will register qualified voters between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, October 6 and 7. A registration table will be set up outside the Gates Center in the Mohr Student Center. Last week about 45 Lake Forest College students registered to vote with Gayle and Marquardt. 

Who can register: Citizens of the United States who will be 18 years of age by Election Day.

What to bring: Two pieces of identification, at least one of which is a picture ID (ideally a driver’s license or a state ID) and at least one of which bears your current address (this can be a utility bill). Students are legally entitled to claim the College as their residence. 

Naturalized citizens: Be prepared to provide the court in which you were naturalized, the date of the process, and on whose papers you were naturalized (yours or your parents).

Faculty and staff: New Illinois residents, as well as those who have moved or changed their names, can register at this time.

For a private appointment: Call Gayle at extension 5083 or Marquardt at extension 5126 to set up an appointment before October 11.
