If you don't want to wait until Election Day, Nov. 6, to cast your ballot in the presidential election, you don't have to.
In Cook County, Early Voting starts Monday, Oct. 22 and continues through Nov. 3.
Anyone can vote early, and you don't need to give a reason. So if you have to work on Election Day, or just want to get it out of the way, you can head to the polls now.
