By about 4:30 p.m., the city's elections website appeared to be functioning again.
Earlier Tuesday, Langdon Neal said ChicagoElections.com was moving "very slowly," which is why they decided to link voters looking for information on where to vote directly to the state website. Communications Director James P. Allen said in an email that "the Chicago Election Board web site is getting deluged with unprecedented levels of traffic."
Polling places close at 7 p.m. Anyone in line by the closing time of 7p.m. will be allowed to vote.
