Cook County Clerk David Orr reminds suburban Cook County voters that Early Voting ends Saturday.
A total of 28,993 early voters participated through noon on Friday. This surpassed the total number of early voters for the 2011 Consolidated Election (26,679) but was lower than the number of voters – 30,234 – for the same time period of Early Voting in 2013. The 2013 election, however, featured more contested mayoral races and the Special Election for the 2nd Congressional District.
“The Friday and Saturday before the election are always the busiest days for Early Voting, and we expect the final weekend to follow that trend,” Orr said.
The busiest sites through Thursday were: Orland Township Hall, Orland Park (1,677); Oakwood Recreation Center, Matteson (1,651); Centennial Park, Wilmette (1,560), Faith Family Future Center, South Holland (1,301), and the Arlington Heights Village Hall (1,136).
A government-issued photo ID is required to vote early.
Remember! Suburban Cook County voters must vote at a suburban Cook County site. Chicago voters should visit chicagoelections.com for more information.
