CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- With the November mid-term elections two weeks away, early voting will begin Monday in Cook County. 

Here is where and how to vote early in and around Chicago:

First of all, any voting-eligible resident and vote early in Cook County, and does not need to give a reason to access early vote, according to Cook County. Voter registration is available at all early voting sites and voters can register up until election day on Nov. 6. To register, one must have two valid forms of identification.

A state identification card is not needed to vote, but it could come in handy for any questions concerning a voter's eligibility, according to the country's website on early voting. 

The main early voting site is in the Cook County building at 69 W. Washington St., which is open daily through Nov. 5, the last day of early voting. There are two locations you can early vote in the building: on the fifth floor and in the Pedway. The site is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 10 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays. 

The other 51 early voting sites in the county are all in the suburbs. The Cook County Clerk's Office even has a website where voters can check how long wait times are at various early voting locations.

Check out the map below to see which facilities have early voting sites.
