Election official: Low Election Day turnout so far after high participation in early voting

A Chicago Board of Elections official suggested high participation in early voting for the city’s runoff elections may have been a factor in the low Election Day turnout so far on Tuesday.

Board Chairman Langdon Neal told reporters during a morning press briefing that polling places had “been very quiet.” Election officials later confirmed that Election Day turnout remained low through the afternoon.
