(CHICAGO) As part of National Voter Registration Day, the Cook County Clerk’s office is holding dozens of voter registration events throughout Chicago and the suburbs.

Cook County Clerk David Orr says there is a lot of attention being paid to the Presidential Election, “but the number one item voters need to make sure of, right now, is that they are registered to vote.”

Registration events take place at 90 sites including CTA and Metra stations, colleges, hospitals, community centers and libraries from Matteson to Maywood, Markham to Winnetka, and Evanston to Chicago Heights.

Clerk’s office representatives will even register voters and distribute voting information inside U.S. Cellular Field from 6 – 9 p.m., during the Chicago White Sox game with the Tampa Bay Rays. You can get detailed information about times and locations at
