Early voting surges ahead of 2020 election

An inmate takes part in early voting for the upcoming election at Cook County Jail in Chicago, Illinois, October 17, 2020. Cook County Jail launched early voting over the weekend from inside the facility, saying it expects some 2,000 of its pre-trial detainees to cast ballots. That's a roughly 50% turnout and much higher than the 400-500 absentee ballots that would normally be submitted from the jail, said Sheriff Tom Dart. "It's great," one inmate awaiting trial said on Saturday. "I'm able to voice my opinion and let everyone know that we're still humans and it still counts."

Inmates take part in early voting for the upcoming election at Cook County Jail in Chicago, Illinois, October 17, 2020. The in-jail voting stations were made possible by legislation signed a year and a half ago which mandated that pre-trial detainees have access to the ballot, Lieutenant Governor Juliana Stratton said during the Saturday news conference.
