An inmate takes part in early voting for the upcoming election at Cook County Jail in Chicago, Illinois, October 17, 2020. Cook County Jail launched early voting from inside the facility, saying it expects some 2,000 of its pre-trial detainees to cast ballots. That\u0027s a roughly 50% turnout and much higher than the 400-500 absentee ballots that would normally be submitted from the jail, said Sheriff Tom Dart. \
