The Evanston City Clerk's Office has done an incredible job encouraging us all to vote early. Now it's Election Day and your last chance to make sure your voice is heard at the ballot box.
Polls are open from now till 7 p.m. tonight! Don't let those election judges sit around with nothing to do but eat coffee cake and feel lonely! Pay them a visit. Make them work! Then comment below with a photo of you and your "I voted" sticker, or simply say, "I voted."

As Franklin Roosevelt said, "A Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education."
Today's vote is ALL about education!
