Voters urged to verify polling place

Officials are urging voters to verify their polling place before they head out to vote today, since this may be the first time some have voted since redistricting following the 2010 census. An online voter information tool is available through the Cook County Clerk's web site – click here to find a polling place by address. Visitors may have to be patient, since the high volume of visitors could slow the site response. Information also is available here at the Illinois State Board of Elections web site. Polling places are open until 7 p.m.

Early voting may ease congestion at polling sites

With early voting reaching record levels, voters may find little congestion at the polls today. Some 8,757 registered voters cast their ballots early at Village Hall between Oct. 22 and Nov. 3, according to the Oak Park Village Clerk Teresa Powell. In suburban cook county, about 229,000 voted early, compared to 226,000 in 2008. Another 46,000 requests for mail ballots were received by the Cook County Clerk's Office, up nearly 160 percent over 2008.
