Long Lines at Local Polling Places; Facebook Tracks Voters in Real Time

The America Votes link shows votes by hour and classifies them by age and sex.

Voters in the area - in Channahon and Joliet - are reporting longer lines than they have ever seen in the years they have voted in the same location.

Debbie Craig Greene said it took 40 minutes to vote at the Joliet Public Library Black Road branch polling place Tuesday afternoon, although there were times when that location had no line at all.

Sue, a voter in Channahon, reported on the Channahon-Minooka Facebook Page that the Channahon Park District Maintenance Building had a line Tuesday afternoon and she has never had to stand in line before to vote.

According to Facebook, which is offering a tally of voters in real-time, more than 5 million people had voted by 3:25 p.m., Central time.
