McLean County Clerk Kathy Michael said Tuesday some students are not correctly registering to vote.
"These seem to be people with good intentions. They're downloading the registration form online and passing out hundreds of them at meetings," Michael said.
The problem, according to Michael, is the students are mailing the form in without the information Illinois requires.
Each form needs an official form of ID with a current address. Many students are forgetting to do this, Michael said.
She also said some students' IDs are out of date because it lists their home address, which often times is not their college address.
The clerk's office, Michael said, is making every effort to clear up the confusion before it's too late.
"We will call them, each person on the form, we call. We'll send them a note saying you've got to send in proper ID or you're not going to be able to vote on election day," Michael said.
She is also meeting with student groups at ISU, like College Republicans and Democrats.
But Michael cautions this is not just a student issue.
It's required that everyone registering to vote with the online form provide an ID with a current address. Registering in person requires two forms.
The deadline is October 9.
