Chicago and Cook County's suburbs have set early voting records, according to officials.
As of Sunday afternoon, there were 129,957 people who voted early in Chicago, surpassing the past record high for a primary set in 2008. That year, 81,690 early voter ballots were cast in the city, according to the Chicago Board of Elections.
The Cook County suburbs also smashed early voting records for a presidential primary.
As of Sunday, about 102,400 ballots were cast in the suburbs, according to Cook County Clerk David Orr's office.
That's up from the previous high of 51,116 early votes cast in the 2008 presidential primary.
Early voting began last week and ends today. Illinois holds its primary elections on Tuesday.
