Northeastern Illinois University is committed to providing you with the information and materials you need to vote. Go here to NEIU's Turbovote site and register online to vote in Illinois (you can also register if you live in another state – though online registration restrictions vary from state to state). Once you are registered in the TurboVote system it is easy to verify or update your voter registration, request an absentee ballot form by mail, and sign up for text and/or email election reminders. You can do this all for free. If you have already registered to vote, you can still sign up at NEIU's Turbovote site to receive text or email reminders so you will not miss an election.
