A commenter cited this, "Indiana Code 3-5-4-4 Immunity from arrest while at or going to and from polls Sec. 4" but I have not been able to find an Illinois statute establishing the right to vote or its parameters.
If you are referring to Indiana, rather than Illinois, the Indiana State Constiution, Article 2, Section 2(a) states:
"A citizen of the United States who is at least eighteen (18) years of age and who has been a resident of a precinct thirty (30) days immediately preceding an election may vote in that precinct at the election."
and Article 2, Section 12:
"In all cases, except treason, felony, and breach of the peace, electors shall be free from arrest, in going to elections, during their attendance there, and in returning from the same."
