Early Voting Starts Today!!!

Early voting starts today and ends April 2 for the April 7 consolidated elections. Voting hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to noon Saturday.

Polling places in Proviso Township are:

Bellwood Village Hall, 3200 Washington Blvd.
Melrose Park Village Hall, 1000 N. 25th Ave.
Whitcomb Building (near Maywood Courthouse), 1311 Maybrook Square, Room 109
Here's information from the Cook County Clerk's Office:

The April 7 election is both a consolidated general election -- with more than 3,000 village, school and township candidates on the ballot -- and a special general election to fill the 5th Congressional District seat left vacant by White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.

Those choosing to vote early do not need to provide a reason or excuse. Early voters are required to display valid identification before voting, such as a current driver's license, state-issued ID card or another government-issued photo ID.

Once a voter has participated in Early Voting, they cannot change their ballot or vote on Election Day. For more information about Early Voting or to confirm your voter registration, visit
