Illinois Tech Votes
Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy. Be sure you are ready to cast your ballot on Election Day. Only United States citizens who are 18 years of age on or before the date of the general election are eligible to register to vote. In Illinois, you may vote in the Primary if you are 17, but will be 18-years-old on or before the General Election. For those students who are not citizens of the U.S., however, you are encouraged to follow the election and watch the results so that you can learn more about the political process in the U.S.
