Early voters are hitting the polling booths across the country.  Here in Illinois, voters are showing up in record-breaking numbers in the city and surrounding counties.With Election Day looming, the mudslinging and finger-pointing increases as our dynamic candidates try to win your vote.  It’s also around this time that we hear allegations of voter fraud, voter suppression, and the great Chicago pastime of collecting votes from the grave.But what really constitutes ‘voter fraud’ and who is to blame?  Which citizens are kept from casting their ballot and what can we do to ensure all are treated fairly? We are on the cusp of an historic election and people are more enthusiastic than ever to get out and vote.  The pressure is on for public officials to ensure a fair and accurate count.This morning on “City Voices,” Cook County Clerk David Orr is here to talk about the latest on the elections and how your votes are being protected.
