Today's the last day to vote early.

According to the Chicago Board of Elections, "Chicago voters have already cast more than 225,400 ballots in Early Voting -- on a pace to triple the 81,690 ballots cast during the 18-day Early Voting program for the Primary. On Wed., Oct. 29, Chicago set a new single-day Early Voting record with more than 28,200 ballots cast. That's the seventh time this election that Chicago voters have set a new single-day record."

They advise that even with twice the equipment, busier sites are seeing lines in excess of an hour, and suggest the locations in the following wards might be less busy:
