Good morning, everyone, it's 12:55pm. Today is Election Day, and it is time to vote, my friends. If you already haven't done so, go out and VOTE! I usually don't talk about politics and everything, but today's is VERY important. Today, we are voting for President, State Senator, Cook County Judges, and a few other County and State offices. We are also voting on a couple of proposed amendments.
All polls opened today at 6:00am, and will close at 7:00pm. Having said that, here is some advice for all of you going out to vote this afternoon and evening, and here are some important numbers:
- If you see anything suspicious at the polls, like voter fraud, harassment, etc., be sure to call the Board of Elections at (312)-269-7870. All activities need to be reported.
- To verify registration and for proper Precinct Polling Place, call (312)-269-1604.
- For the Chicago Board of Elections Main Line, call (312)-269-7900.
- PLEASE be patient with the election judges, election volunteers, poll watchers, etc. They're people just like us, but more importantly, this is going to be one of the biggest local elections in a really long time.
If you can, please bring a camera with you to your polling place to take pictures of any funny business, and send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or on the Facebook page if you are a fan.
I need your help today. Please. Kindly be sure to tell me how voting went at your polling place. I will need your Precinct number, Ward, and a basic summary of what you saw.
This post will be updated throughout the day.
