Tomorrow is the day.  Voting day.  While many have already flocked to the polls for early voting, many more will be heading out to the polls tomorrow.  Here are five things you need to know for voting tomorrow. 

1. The polls are open in Illinois from 6 a.m to 7 p.m.  Don't know where your polling place is? Find it here

2. If you are in line by 7 p.m. you can still vote.  There are many other voter's rights like being able to have your young child with you in the booth.  Learn everything about your rights, here.
