Still time to vote early — but not much

SHARE Still time to vote early — but not much

It’s getting late to be early.

Many polling locations are open Saturday for early voting. But that’s the last chance to vote before Election Day on Tuesday.

Unlike on Election Day, when you must vote in your own precinct, early voting is a bit more convenient. As long as you are a registered voter, you can cast a ballot at any early voting location in your electoral jurisdiction.

In other words, Chicagoans can vote at any Chicago early voting site, Lake County residents at any Lake County site and so on. Be careful though, not all suburban locations are open on Saturday. Some are open but offer shorter hours. All 51 Chicago early voting sites are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

If you miss early voting, you can obviously still vote on Election Day. But on Tuesday, you can only vote in your precinct. Chicago area polling places are open 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday.

To help out the last-minute early birds, Early & Often again offers up links to information about the where and when of early voting.

And remember: vote early — but not often.
