More than 1.37 million suburban residents are registered to vote in Tuesday’s Consolidated Election, Cook County Clerk David Orr said Friday.

“With 2,400 candidates and 2,370 precincts, this is one of the most complex elections in the country this year,” Orr said. “

Orr said Friday that 8,023 suburban voters turned out to cast ballots during the Early Voting period, which ended Thursday.

Voters who cannot make it to their polling place on Election Day and can provide a valid reason or excuse under the law may vote in-person absentee. In-person absentee voting runs through Monday, April 16 at the Clerk’s downtown office, located at 69 W. Washington St., as well as at the five satellite offices located in suburban courthouses.
