Voter Registration

Vote buttonThe Hayner Public Library District offers many services to our patrons—including voter registration. Many members of the library staff are Deputy Registrars, who are able to register patrons to vote. Voter registration is usually available during normal library hours; however, you may wish to call the library at 462-0677 to ensure a Deputy Registrar is on duty before you visit.

The last day to register to vote in the November 2016 election is Tuesday, October 11, 2016. The Hayner Public Library District will offer voter registration all day on Tuesday, October 11, until 8 p.m. at the Downtown Library and 9 p.m. at the Alton Square Library.

According to the Madison County Clerk’s office, you may register to vote if you are a United States citizen and a resident of your Madison County precinct address for at least 30 days immediately prior to an election.

Patrons who wish to register to vote must furnish two forms of identification, one of which must include your current name and residence address.

Madison County offers Grace Period Registration to voters who miss the registration deadline. Grace Period Registration is offered from the close of registration through Election Day and must be performed at the Madison County Clerk’s office in Edwardsville. Voters who participate in Grace Period Registration must also vote at the time of registration.
