Election officials expect long lines today as voters take advantage of the final day to register for the presidential election and vote at the same time. The line at the early voting site in the Loop stretched down the hall and around the corner. Because of record breaking voter registration numbers, election officials are pushing early voting.

So far, in Cook County, 140,000 have voted early and a record 23,000 alone cast their ballots Monday.
