Carlos Zambrano, Bobby Jenks and Halle Berry on ballot in Riverside

SHARE Carlos Zambrano, Bobby Jenks and Halle Berry on ballot in Riverside

Near west suburban Riverside saw steady turnout traffic this morning, with a short wait around 8:20 a.m. for voters wanting to use the electronic voting booths (though there was no wait to use the old-fashioned paper ballots.)

A sample sheet used an example of how to use the paper ballots featured a couple unusual names. The handout, which a poll worker said came from the county, featured ex-Cub Carlos Zambrano up against ex-White Sox closer Bobby Jenks battling for “Favorite Pitcher.” Meryl Streep was pitted against “Halle Barry,” pictured, for “Favorite Actress.” The

latter actress actually spells her name b – E- r- r-y.
