Where do I vote? Chicago polling locations slow to load on city election site
November 6, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Due to heavy traffic on the Chicago Election Board website, officials were encouraging people to visit the state website to find out their polling locations in the 2012 Chicago elections.
By about 4:30 p.m., the city's elections website appeared to be functioning again.
Earlier Tuesday, Langdon Neal said ChicagoElections.com was moving "very slowly," which is why they decided to link voters looking for information on where to vote directly to the state website. Communications Director James P. Allen said in an email that "the Chicago Election Board web site is getting deluged with unprecedented levels of traffic."
Polling places close at 7 p.m. Anyone in line by the closing time of 7p.m. will be allowed to vote.
