Annual City Sticker

City residents who own a vehicle are required to have a valid city sticker. New residents and those who recently purchased a vehicle have 30 days to come into compliance. City stickers are sold through the Chicago City Clerk’s office. We do not sell city stickers at the 46th Ward office. You can purchase a sticker at the Chicago City Clerk’s website or at following locations:

  • City Clerk Office – 121 N LaSalle, Room 107
  • City Clerk Satellite Office – 5430 W Gale
  • Department of Revenue – 2550 W Addison
  • Most Currency Exchanges (service fee may apply)

You must show proof of address and vehicle registration when purchasing a sticker in person.


As of November 12th, 2019, residents who have an unexpired Illinois Driver’s License or State ID with a Veteran designation will be eligible to receive one City Sticker at no cost. 

Please note that residents can only take advantage of this offer at Office of the City Clerk locations. There will be no refunds for previously issued stickers. Residents will qualify when their sticker is up for renewal.

Residential Zone Parking

Certain streets restrict parking to neighborhood residents. Vehicles parking on these streets during specified hours are required to display a valid residential parking permit. Only residents of zoned streets and adjacent buffer zones are eligible to purchase parking permits. Buffer zones include streets that touch a street with zoned parking only. Businesses are not eligible to receive residential parking permits.
