Chicago-area voters line up at polls after early voters set record – Chicago Tribune

Voters went to the polls early Tuesday to choose the next president of the United States as well as select state and local leaders — lining up at community centers, schools and even bars to cast their votes.

In addition to choosing between presidential contenders Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, they face choices for Illinois’ junior U.S. Senate seat as well as contests that will determine control over the state legislature.

The election, perhaps the most bitter and divisive in history, could end with the country electing its first female president.

Dozens of voters, the majority of them African-American, poured into O’Keeffe Elementary School in the South Shore neighborhood during the first hour polls were open.
