Early Voting at Whitney Young Library-Last day TODAY!

I voted yesterday at Whitney Young Library at 79th & King Drive, & was # 373. I think the final total for that day was ~ 380 (Me & my wife were one of the last ones in for the day).

They used all touch screen voting booths...very quick & easy. There were many seniors out there, and woman who brought her 24 year old son -- all excited to vote, and no problems that we saw.

By the way -- that was 380 for that day ! The average was 200, my wife overheard. With today's totals and tomorrows anticipated, up to 4000 people voted early at Whitney Young Libary in the 6th ward. That's about as many as had voted the first day throughout the entire city!

Don't forget to thank the election staff for their hard work! They're great & friendly people... At least one , though, was so tired that she might not be there to work Feb 5!

The last day for early voting in Chicago is January 31. For early voting only, you can vote at any of 51 sites (one in each ward, plus the Chicago Board of Elections), not just the one for your ward. So you can feel free to bring a friend or co-worker from the North Side, or take a relative from the West Side.

For more information on Early Voting, go to the Chicago Board of Elections web page on Early Voting

On Tuesday, February 5, you have to go to your designated polling place.
