The Illinois primary election is Tuesday, March 16th, and if you're not registered for it, your deadline is Tuesday, February 17th (that's tomorrow!). The major appointments to be decided for this election: the Democratic Presidential candidate, and nominees for the Senate seat that will be vacated by outgoing Sen. Peter Fitzgerald. If you have questions about registration, the Sun-Times has a small FAQ page, including where to go to get registered. If you're already registered and want to see a list of candidates in your local area, can help you out. And finally, Chicago Public Radio has coverage on the primary election, including audio archives of candidate debates, a list of the Senate candidate list, and even a page where various voters talk about why or why not they're planning to vote.
