Cook County and Lake County Early Voting Locs
UPDATE for 2008 elections:

More information for 2008 here.

LAKE COUNTY: The complete list of early voting locations is here.

COOK COUNTY: The complete list of early voting locations is here.

This is the schedule for the state of Illinois, directly from the website (see the side): if you're in the military, a student, etc. go there for more details, phone numbers, etc. It's not the easiest website to navigate (unlike the Cook County site, which is great).

You can also check with the Dan Seals for Congress website or call the office. If you're looking to volunteer for a good candidate on Chicago's North Shore, you can find no one better.

After googling fruitlessly all over, finally remembered I got this info from the Seals for Congress campaign via email. So here it is:

Early Voting Details:

Early voting will be offered to any eligible voter, without reason (i.e. not required to be absent, physically disabled, etc.) from October 16th to November 2nd.
