Chance The Rapper Leads Thousands of Young Voters to the Polls in Chicago

Chicago native Chance The Rapper escorted a caravan of young Chicagoans to a local polling place on the last day of early voting Monday, Nov. 7.

This all occurred after the young musician’s free pre-election concert at Grant Park’s Petrillo Music Shell. The event was hosted by his nonprofit, Social Works. While he was surrounded by thousands of young millennials, they all gallivanted to an early voting super center in Chicago’s Loop to cast their votes. In addition, organizers from the city’s Black Youth Project 100 led the crowd through the streets.

According to ABC 7 Chicago, there has been record-shattering early voter turnout. As of this report, more than 284,000 people voted early. Cook County officials state that these new numbers easily broke the record set in 2008.

Participants canvassed social media with the hashtag #paradetothepolls with videos and photos from last night’s event.

In a tweet from Monday, Chance told his fans that the venue had been relocated and that he had not voted yet.

User @sizetoosmall recalls almost crying after the 23-year-old entertainer passed her.

Furthermore, the rapper clarifies the local news report, which claimed that only hundreds showed up. He wants everyone to know that there were thousands.
