Just left The Chicago Board Of Elections where we led over 100 people who joined the call by Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr to Early Vote today and what a great feeling to see the lines of people still coming even after our delegation voted. Great press collaboration today with myself, Chairman of The Illinois Voter Restoration Project and National Black Wall Street Chicago and as a former Field Director for Rainbow/PUSH - along with my old colleagues at Rainbow/PUSH Coalition like Rev Janette Wilson, Bishop Tavis Grant, Betty Magness, Willie Dukes, Michael Peery, Rev. Gregory Seal Livingston and others. GREAT momentum for early voting and let the momentum continue, but THANKS to all who rode the bus and met us there!!

Community Activist Ranoule Tatum, a member of The Illinois Voter Restoration Project reported on the other record turnout areas across Chicago
This Just In: Way to GO, Chicago voters! Shattered first-day early voting turnout record (set in 2008) by 25%! So many voters that we posted an "Early Voting Traffic Report" @ www.chicagoelections.com for those who want to hunt down the sites w/ the shortest lines! Please try to VOTE B/4 November 2nd!!!!!
