Early Voting Ends
- Early voting in the election for mayor of Chicago is over, and the Chicago Elections Board says an unofficial total of 73,251 Chicagoans cast early ballots.
The board says that's three times the number of early votes cast ahead of the 2007 mayoral election, but roughly 10,000 fewer than for the 2008 Presidential Primary or the Nov. 2010 General Election.
The early voting was closed Thursday, but there still will be in-person absentee voting at the board's headquarters in downtown Chicago. That runs through Monday.
And the FOP election - have you sent in your ballots yet?
