Serious election foulups in Chicago 

Lots of people have been having trouble voting in Chicago.

Meanwhile, Kerry is cleaning up with around 70% of the Illinois vote right now. I know Chicago usually turns Illinois into a blue state, but in 2000 the split was around 55-43.

Perhaps the networks are ridiculously oversampling Cook County. Or maybe something fishy is going on. According to this page, Cook County split about 70-30 for Gore in 2000. If Blackfive's precinct is split 70-30, and one assumes that the disenfranchised voters are a representative sample of the precinct, then there's about a 0.14% chance that 10 out of 10 such voters would all be Republican.

This is definitely something to watch.
