T'heyre voting on Saturday because it's conventient. There's no lines. But why she's voting has another answer for Meg Whitting.

Whitting said she hopes everyone else is taking the Midterm elections as seriously as she is. 

"I think this year, it defintiely feels like people are getting out, turning out, talking about it," she said. "People are upset. I think that's the best the best way to show your citizenship."

The city and county are each operating early voting "super sites" in the Loop, while most other precincts in the city have their own early voting polls. The main early voting site is in the Cook County building at 69 W. Washington St., which is open daily through Nov. 5, the last day of early voting. There are two locations you can early vote in the building: on the fifth floor and in the Pedway. The site is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 10 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays.
