NORMAL, Ill.- Early voting for the March primary begins this week for Illinoisans.
Although the primary election is not officially until March 17, voters can start casting their ballot as early as Thursday.
The State Board of Elections spokesperson Matt Dietrich expects a lot of voters to utilize this service.
“Early voting has gotten more popular ever since it began,” said Dietrich. “It seems to grow every year and the real reason is convenience. You can vote at your own on the day that you select, at the time that you select. And you can avoid the lines that can sometimes occur on election day.”
Mail-in ballots will be sent out starting Thursday. To find local polling places or to register to vote, those interested can visit elections.il.gov.
