Obama already out of election night tickets

CHICAGO On Tuesday, the Obama campaign sent out e-mail invitations to Illinois supporters for the event, which will be just north of the Field Museum.

City officials say up to 70,000 people can fit in that area. Mayor Daley says he expects as many as one million people to flock to the lakefront on election night.

Officials are asking downtown businesses to consider letting workers go home early on Election Day.
