Take a close look at your new voter registration information when it arrives in the mail shortly — because your voting district and polling place may have changed.

That’s the word from County Clerk David Orr, who said today that new voter registration cards have been mailed to about 1.38 million active registered voters in suburban Cook County.

The mailing includes the registration card, which displays new congressional, state senate and house districts, and Cook County board of review districts reflecting any changes due to redistricting.

Also in the mailing, information on the voter’s election day polling location, which may have changed due to precinct consolidation; the closest early voting site, early voting dates and tips and vote by mail guidelines.

You can also find information about the new voter information tool online to to find directions to their polling places, sample ballots, candidate statements and more.

The mailed notices will also serve as a canvass. Any notices returned as undeliverable to the clerk’s office will be used to update voter statuses prior to the Nov. 6 presidential election.
