Voters Rush In For Early Voting In Niles

 

Will there be anyone left to vote on Nov. 6?

Yes, there will. But one can be forgiven for asking the question, because 1,726 voters have cast their ballots during Early Voting at Niles Village Hall alone. That's the figure through Monday Oct. 29; early voting continues through Saturday.

"The only comparison I have is for the primary election held earlier this year, where there were 377 total voters," said Marlene Victorine, Niles Village Clerk.
