Primary voting at UIC available March 4-19

Dear students, faculty, and staff,

As head of Chicago’s largest – and only public – research university, I am excited to share that voting for the 2024 presidential primary election will begin at UIC on Monday, March 4, and run through Election Day on Tuesday, March 19. The polling place is in Room 613 in the Tower at the north end of Student Center East. It will be open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays. Anyone who permanently lives in the city of Chicago can vote on campus. For those who live outside the city, see the voter resources provided below.

UIC continues to lead the way in promoting civic engagement and expanding opportunities for voter participation. Please get involved any way you can – by voting, serving as an election judge, attending a debate-watch or ballot party, or learning about issues and candidates. You can find more information on the Student Leadership and Civic Engagement website. For questions, contact the UIC Office of Government Relations and Advocacy at

Go Flames – and go vote!
