Latest report on voting - Chicago

600,000 early votes cast in Cook County. The most ever. The majority of voters are women. PEople of color are coming out in droves. Lines for early voting stretch blocks long in certain areas.

No matter who wins, this appears to be the highest turnout ever, according to a Cook County election official.

Heh, take that, Bruce Donald Rauner. Your $26,000,000 personal investment did little but make radio and local tv companies happy.

Sigh, still there is a problem. For 5 minutes of local evening news, it feels like there are 20 minutes of attack ads.

17. I noticed a complete absence of red

After Trump suggested that his voters sport that color while voting, I think he inadvertently changed people's choice of clothing for this election season.
