Record number of Chicago voters cast their ballots in early voting

CHICAGO -- Voters are taking advantage of early voting and are turning out in record numbers.

So far more than 284,000 people have cast their ballots.

That's more than the general election in 2008 when President Barack Obama was running for his first term in The White House.

If you still want to cast your ballot before early voting ends, you have until 7 p.m. tonight.
