Early voting sites open in suburban Cook County

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Early voting for suburban Cook County residents begins Wednesday.

The early voting Super Site in the Loop opened last week, where hundreds lined the street to cast their ballots.

Another voting location will open at 8:30 a.m. at the Cook County Administration Building located at 69 W. Washington Street.

All suburban cook county courthouses will also be open for early voting.

These early voting sites will also have secured drop boxes, where voters can return their completed ballots in their signed and sealed envelopes.

Election officials have been pushing mail-in ballots as a secure way to vote during the pandemic. But they have already seen a large increase in early voting in-person.

Hundreds lined up to cast their ballot in the 2020 presidential election as early voting began in Chicago Thursday morning.



Long lines are also expected at the 69 W. Washington Street location.

To note: It is a very long ballot this year. So election officials are asking voters to plan your vote, and look at a sample ballot online ahead of time.

"Additionally, we're getting ready to roll out Union Station. We're really excited about this because a lot of our voters in suburban Cook County come through Union Station," Cook County Clerk Karen Yarbrough said.

Early voting will expand to 53 suburban locations and a site at Union Station on October 19th.
