County election officials note that voters do not need to provide an excuse or reason why they cannot vote on Election Day. 

Government-issued photo ID is not required but is helpful if there is a question about the voter's registration, address or signature.  Providing an ID can also speed up the process because there are ID card readers at every check-in station. 

Voters can register to vote at all early vote sites. Any voter who needs to register for the first time or file an address change must present two forms of ID, one of which shows the voter's current address.
 

About Us

A great community deserves a great newspaper. The HF Chronicle was created in June 2014 as the Homewood Chronicle (but we soon realized Homewood and Flossmoor are so interconnected that it makes better sense to cover both villages). Our mission is to chronicle the life of our community — news by, for, and about the people of Homewood and Flossmoor, Illinois.
