The state of Illinois is one of the few states allowing citizens to register to vote and cast a ballot on election day as long as they are 18 or older and have resided in the jurisdiction 30 days prior to elections. Some citizens who are still registering to vote today are continuing to wait to cast their votes nearly three hours after polls were supposed to close at Chicago Board of Elections.
