Voting hours at four precincts have been extended until 8 p.m., the election board said Tuesday.
The board received a court order to keep the following sites open past the 7 p.m. closing of polls:
- Ward 02-Precinct 25- Wicker Pk Fieldhouse , 1425 N Damen Ave
- Ward 41 -Precinct 15 -Olympia Park , 6566 N Avondale Ave
- Ward 41-Precinct 37 -Olympia Park, 6566 N Avondale Ave
- Ward 48-Precinct 27 -Sovereign, 1040 W Granville Ave
A spokesman said the board sought the order "to make sure that any voter who might have been turned away has a chance to return and vote" after learning that the sites in question opened late.
State law requires that votes cast during the extra hour are done so with a provisional ballot.
The election will determine the outcome of the mayoral race, as well as ward races and three non-binding referendum questions. For complete coverage of Election Day, visit NBC Chicago's Ward Room blog.
