With early voting continuing this week ahead of the Nov. 4 general election, county election officials report 1,773 people had cast ballots in Evanston as of early this afternoon.
Cook County Clerk David Orr says the turnout so far has been impressive and is expected to grow as election day nears.
“We anticipate voters will really appreciate being able to cast a ballot after work now that all 43 suburban Cook County early voting sites are open until 7 p.m. today through Friday,” Orr added.
Countywide 55,700 early ballots have been cast so far. The early voting turnout at the Civic Center in Evanston ranks the city ninth among the 43 early voting sites across the county.
