Polling Place: City of Joliet, 25th Precinct

Earlier this week, reporter Tony Arnold and I trekked it south down I 55 to Joliet, Illinois. Tony is covering the hotly-contested 11th district race there and I was along to get a sense of the community, and what issues are driving voters to the polls. Most people associate Joliet with the prison and the Blues Brothers, but what else goes on there? I grabbed this polling place pic when we were driving around town. It's St. Peter's Lutheran Church and School, located at 308 N. Broadway St. Another pic after the jump:
Tune in next week for Tony's story and check the blog for my videos and pictures from the day...(and not one is of the prison.) And, don't forget to upload your pics of polling places at our Flick pool.
