After months of campaign speeches, television ads and continued, expected controversy, Election Day is nearly here.

Candidates packed their schedules over the weekend and continue to maneuver around town Monday, anticipating Tuesday's big day.

Where can you find Miguel del Valle, Rahm Emanuel, Gery Chico and Carol Moseley Braun on Election Day? According to campaign spokespeople, here's where they're expected to watch the votes roll in:

Del Valle: Revolution Brewing, 2323 N. Milwaukee Ave., a Logan Square brewpub. 

Emanuel: Stephen M. Bailey Auditorium, at Chicago Journeymen Plumbers, Local Union 130, 1340 W. Washington Blvd.

Chico: Westin Chicago River North, 320 N. Dearborn Ave.

Braun: Parkway Ballroom, 4455 South King Drive, an event space in Bronzeville.

Where will Mayor Daley be during all of this? Not anywhere near the action.

The retiring mayor cast his vote early and will spend the day with Maggie Daley, the Sun-Times reports.
