Early voters turn out to vote in Chicago


10:06, November 04, 2012

CHICAGO, Nov. 3 (Xinhua) -- While most U.S. citizens will vote next Tuesday, some of the country's early voters are already out to cast their ballots. Ms. Megan Keskitaoo from Chicago turned out to vote on Saturday, saying "I hope our new president will be our old president."

Keskitaoo and her husband came to the management office of the Horner Park in Chicago Saturday morning, and joined a queue of some 30 people meandering upward to the second floor to cast their votes for the U.S. president.

Living only a block away from the early voting site, Keskitaoo and her husband hope Obama will win the election. "I don't think ( Mitt) Romney's policies will help our nation," she said, adding "I think (Barack) Obama has much better ideas."

The official voting day actually falls on November 6. But to address the need of those who may not be able to show up on the voting day, the city of Chicago opened early voting sites in 50 wards from September 29 to November 3.
