Early Voting in Chicago

Submitted by Leo Klein on Sat, 10/25/08 (2:23pm)

So I came up with the brilliant idea of ducking out from work to go to the Early Voting location at the Public Library just across the street.

Bad move. After filling out the form and giving them my ID, I was led into a waiting room with more than 60 people! This is going to take a hundred years. My colleagues at work probably think I skipped out of town.

[Note: the above was written while I was marooned in the waiting room. And yes, I finally got out and was able to resume normal reference services.]
