Cook County Clerk David Orr reminds suburban Cook County voters that Early Voting ends Saturday and all 44 sites are open Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A total of 175,917 early voters participated through the end of the day on Thursday. Record participation in the final two days could push turnout above the 2008 total of 226,084.

“This is the first time Early Voting extends through the Friday and Saturday before the election and we are anticipating a busy push to the finish,” Orr said.

The busiest sites through Thursday were: Orland Township (10,220); Arlington Heights Village Hall (10,149); Matteson Village Hall (8,417); Evanston Civic Center (7,375) and Schaumburg Library (7,055).

At cookcountyclerk.com, voters can find an Early Voting location list and map, an Early Voting daily turnout chart by site, and real-time turnout by site.

A government-issued photo ID is required to vote early.

Remember! Suburban Cook County voters must vote at a suburban Cook County site. Chicago voters should visit chicagoelections.com for more information.
