Early voting sites around the city reopened Friday, WBEZ reports.

Save one, all of the polling locations have been closed since Tuesday due to the blizzard. The election board office location at 69 West Washington stayed open, but saw fewer than 50 people casting votes Wednesday, according to WBEZ.

Early voting started Monday and continues through Feb. 17. Every ward has its own voting site, open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The sites in the 19th and 47th Ward -- along with the election board office -- are open every day including Sundays and on Feb. 11, when the other locations are closed.

Registered voters must present government-issued photo identification at their polling place.
