Tuesday's election appeared to be plagued with numerous problems at polling locations across the Chicago area.
On the city's North Side, at Welles Park, the final vote was cast 3 :15 a.m. Wednesday, as voters waited more than eight hours after the polls closed at 7 p.m.
Many voters say they were line before 5 p.m. and waited outside in the cold for more than two hours before they made their way indoors to a gymnasium.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel stopped by to greet voters and shake hands but voters say he offered no relief to their long wait.
Thomas Leach says he registered to vote in February but was told there was no record of his registration and he was sent to Welles Park to vote. It was one of five locations in Chicago were residents could register to vote on Tuesday and still cast their ballot.
Leach said he voiced his frustration with Emanuel but was told "It's not my job."
Among those who waited for hours, Phillip Brownlee, a CPS teacher, said he arrived at about 4:20p.m. but did not get to vote until 12:15a.m.
He said there were not enough judges to handle the large turnout and poll judges struggled with malfunctioning voting machines.
Langdon Neal, the chairman of the Chicago Board of Elections, said more than two-thousand election judges failed to show up to polling sites Tuesday, after a series of robocalls instructed those judges to stay home.
The source of those calls is not known.
Neal said an investigation into those calls will be conducted to see if someone did tamper with the election.
