Early voting in Chicago has already seen multiple delays as the Loop Super Site was closed for multiple days during the brutally cold polar vortex, which brought dangerously cold temperatures to the city in late-January.

The start of early voting was also delayed due to several challenges candidates filed against opponents' nominating petitions, in an effort to knock them off the ballot. 

Per state law, early voting is required to begin 40 days prior to an election, however, the ongoing challenges precluded the Board of Elections from printing final ballots by the Jan. 17 deadline.
