This is one of my favorite days of the year. If you've listened to WDCB for any length of time, you probably know I love the political process. All of the analysis and projections are moot now, it's up to you to go vote, make your voice heard, be part of the process. My dad used to tell me, "if you don't vote, you don't get to complain or take credit." So allow me to again encourage you to go to your polling place and cast a ballot; sure there may be a line but it's not like you had to walk across a desert and dodge bullets to take part in the process. If you encounter problems at your polling place, please let us know, the WDCB News line is 630-942-3700.
We've got a lot planned for tonight. The Associated Press will cover what's going on around the country at the top of each hour. Illinois Public Radio will cover what's going on across Illinois, those reports will begin at 7:30 and will continue through probably 11:30. After the reports from IPR, WDCB News will keep you abreast of what's happening in Dupage County. We're planning to keep track of the races for Dupage County Board, Forest Preserve Commission as well as the race between Peter Roskam and Jill Morganthaller in the 6th Congressional District and Jim Oberweis and Bill Foster in the 14th Congressional District. We'll also keep tabs on the various local referenda that voters are deciding with today's election. I also expect to have reports from the Obama rally in Grant park. It should be a very exciting night.
Again, please feel free to call us if you have problems on this election day.
