  1. I live in south carolina and wish to vote in the run-off election june 22nd. can i e-mail my vote? if so can you send a ballot by e-mail? I am in georgia and cannot get back to sc in time. thank you

  2. I want to initiate a Voter Registration Project, primarily for the 21st Ward, but it will eventually include all of Cook County. I want to know what steps I have to take to become a Deputy Registrar, so that I can legally register people to vote. Also, is it a requirement that I am a Deputy Registrar, or can anyone sign someone up to vote?

    • I admire your interest in voter registration. Hope the following information answers your questions and helps you begin the drive.

      From what I can tell, you do have to be a Deputy Registrar to hold registration drives in Illinois. To become deputized, there are a few steps you need to take. First and foremost, in Cook County, you need to be sponsored by a civic organization (churches, schools, political parties, labor unions, etc.)

      Once an organization backs you, you need to fill out forms and return them to your township clerk or the Cook County clerk within 7 days of picking them up.

      Next up is the 1 hour training and then the swearing in. Assuming you are qualified (attend the training, are registered to vote in cook county, over 18 etc.), you are then deputized for a two year period. Terms run out every even year right after the November election (November 12, 2012 this term) and you can apply for a recommission.

      Check out the info here and good luck. I wish you success.
