Happy Voting

“On Election Day . . . some Ukrainian Village residents will arrive at one the neighborhood’s corner taverns, ID in hand, not to celebrate the victory of their favored candidate or mourn an electoral defeat over a beer. They’ll trek over to Happy Village to cast a ballot in this year’s election,” the Chicago Journal reports. “The tavern at 1059 N. Wolcott is the polling place for voters living in 1st Ward’s fourth precinct. This is a tradition that’s been going on for the past 30 years in the family-run business.”

U Lucky Dawg – formerly Fluky’s – is another classic Chicago polling place, the Journal notes.

So Chicago.


I voted on the basketball court of the Wicker Park Fieldhouse this morning. Please feel free to send me your polling places along with any amusing or insightful anecdotes or leave them in the comments section. I’ll be here until midnight, folks.

  1. As of 9:30 p.m. this morning, I have passed THREE near northwest side polling places where there are NO LINES! DO NOT LET THE TV COVERAGE OF LONG LINES STOP YOU! Grand and Marshfield, Grand and Campbell, and the Humboldt Park Library polling places have NO WAIT TO VOTE! WOO-HOO!
