Vote Early, Vote Often

The above quote has a few possible sources, but the most likely one is William Hale Thompson, mayor of Chicago from 1915 to 1923, and again from 1927 to 1931. His second stint came about thanks to the support of Al Capone. Is it a coincidence that Thompson is also the last Republican elected to the office of mayor in our fair city? You decide.

Regardless of Thompson’s political leanings I did follow the first half of his advice and got my vote on yesterday up at Welles Park. The whole process took about forty-five minutes, including the wait in line – and that was in the middle of a Saturday. If you haven’t voted yet, you can still participate in early voting through this coming Thursday. Click here to find the early voting location closest to you.
