Evanston residents looking to vote early for the November presidential election can visit the Lorraine H. Morton Civic Center to cast their vote starting Monday.

Early voting will take place in Room G300 at 2100 Ridge Ave. and end on Nov. 7, the day before the election. Voters will not be required to bring a government-issued photo ID, a news release said.

Those looking to register to vote must be a U.S. citizen, at least 18 years old and have lived in the precinct they plan to vote in at least 30 days before Election Day. Those looking to register to vote during early voting must bring two pieces of identification, such as a credit card or a birth certificate. A photo ID is not necessary, but one of the identification pieces must contain the applicant’s current address.

The Civic Center will be open for voters from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the first week of early voting, and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday through Friday for the second week.

The center will also be open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sundays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
