CHICAGO (AP) - More than 21,000 people have taken advantage of early voting in Chicago over the first two days.

A spokesman with the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners says 7,914 early voting ballots were cast Monday, and nearly 13,100 were cast Tuesday. He says that data brings the board’s unofficial two-day total to 21,012 votes.

The board says it’s the largest number of ballots cast during the first two days of early voting for any municipal election in Chicago.

The first municipal election to offer early voting in February 2007 drew more than 1,440 votes in the first two days. Early voting for the February 2011 election saw over 8,550 votes in the first two days.

Almost 11,640 votes were cast in the first two days of early voting ahead of the February 2015 election.
