Duties of the Village Clerk
The Village Clerk is University Park's local election official. The office of the Village Clerk works closely with the office of Karen A. Yarbrough and Will County Clerk Lauren Staley Ferry to determine accessible polling locations.
The Clerk also:
- Functions as deputy registrar to register votes
- Conducts in-person absentee voting prior to each election
- Certifies results from all referenda and local elections
Registration is necessary for anyone who has moved to University Park or within University Park. To be qualified to register to vote, you must be a U.S. citizen at least 18 years of age by the date of the next election and must have resided in the precinct at least 30 days prior to the date of the election.
How to Register
Registration is best conducted in person. Two forms of identification are required, one of which must show the registrant's address. Acceptable forms of ID include a driver's license, a utility bill in the applicant's name, identification from the registrant's school/work or public assistance, a printed checkbook with the registrant's name and residence address, birth certificate, or mail postmarked to the registrant's current address from a federal, state, or city agency, utility, etc. Registration can be done by mail application, but the voter must vote in person, not an absentee.
Naturalized citizens must provide the date and location of their naturalization. For further information contact the Village Hall at (708) 534-6451. You may also verify your registration at the Cook County Clerk website or the Will County Clerk website.
