Municipal election voting at UIC
Dear students, faculty and staff,
Early voting for the 2023 Chicago municipal election is now underway at UIC. As I shared in the fall, the university is the principal early voting site for the newly created 34th Ward. Any person who resides in the City of Chicago may vote on campus. Resources for voters who live outside the city are provided below.
Voting will take place each day at UIC until the municipal election Tuesday, Feb. 28. If no mayoral candidate receives a majority of the vote, a runoff election will be held from Monday, March 20, through Tuesday, April 4. The polling place for the municipal general election and a runoff election is located in Room 613 of the tower at the north end of Student Center East, 750 S. Halsted St.
Polls will be open for early voting during both elections from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays. On Feb. 28 and April 4, the polls in Student Center East will remain open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Voting at UIC is more convenient than ever, so please take this opportunity to make your voice heard. As always, you may consult the website of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement for information on election-related events on campus. For other questions, contact the UIC Office of Government Relations and Advocacy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
