You can avoid the lines at the polls on Election Day by VOTING EARLY!
Vote early at any one of 51 sites, one in each ward, plus the Chicago Board of Elections office downtown, from now until Thursday, October 30th. Early Voting hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Early Voting is also available on Sundays downtown at the Board of Elections office, from 9:00 a.m. to 12 Noon.
Here are the Early Voting locations most convenient to 49th Ward residents:
7340 N. Rogers (just west of the Clark and Rogers Walgreen’s)
1210 W. Elmdale (at Broadway)
6601 N. Western (2 blocks south of Pratt)
Chicago Board of Elections
69 W. Washington (across from Daley Plaza)
Although you can vote early, you cannot vote often. State law provides that once you cast a ballot during early voting, you cannot return during Early Voting or on Election Day to change your ballot for any reason.
I urge you to take advantage of this convenience to exercise your cherished right to vote.
