Last night's debate may have fired up area voters.

But there are some rules and timelines you have to consider in order to vote.

Registration closes at different times in Iowa and Illinois.

And second chance voting periods differ between the states.

Both Iowa and Illinois have different cut off dates for voter registration coming up soon.

In Illinois the first voter registration cut off is October Ninth.

That means you can not go to the Secretary of State's offices, libraries, or township offices to register.

There is a grace period between October 10th and November 3rd.

Where you can go to the County Clerk and register and vote at the same time.

Just make sure you have a photo i.d. and a utility bill of some kind.

And once election day is here Illinois residents can no longer register to vote.

Let's look at Iowa

The rules here you have to turn in a registration card by October 27th.

If you miss the deadline go to the County Auditor with something that proves you live in the state.

Again most photo i-d's will work as well as utility bills.

Now here's the major difference between Iowa and Illinois.

Iowan's can register and vote on election day.

Just make sure you have that i-d.

If you have any questions about where you can vote.

Head over to KWQC.com.

You'll find the decision 2012 link we told you about earlier click on that.

You'll see two links for Illinois and Iowa county election information.

Pick your state then your county.

Find the link that says "find your polling place"

Type in your street number and the name.

It will pop up a list that includes your precinct information.

The precinct will list your polling place.
