Early voting ends, absentee voting still an option
CHICAGO — Early voting for Tuesday’s run-off election has ended.
Saturday was the last day.
Chicagoans cast an unofficial total of 142,344 early voting ballots, according to the Chicago Board of Election.
That’s compared to 89,869 early voting ballots cast ahead of the election in February, and 73,268 early voting ballots cast ahead of the February election in 2011.
Grace period registration and voting is also over. Same-day registration is not allowed in this election.
Voters can still cast an absentee ballot, if they have already applied for one. It needs to be postmarked by Monday.
Chicagoans also have the option of doing in-person absentee voting, even if they haven’t applied for a ballot.
It’s only being offered at 69 W. Washington Street, in the lower level.
The hours are 9 a.m. to Noon on Sunday, April 5 and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, April 6.
Chicago voters may use in-person absentee voting whether or not they applied for an absentee ballot. No excuse is needed.
