Following his free concert at the Petrillo Music Shell in Chicago’s Grant Park on Monday afternoon (Nov. 7), Chance the Rapper kicked off a parade through rush hour traffic to a voting site in Illinois.
A line of voters waiting to cast their ballots in the 2016 Presidential Election wrapped around a city block. Thousands of fans followed Chance as the rapper headed to the polling location. Those who were in line by 7 p.m. local time were allowed to vote.
“This election is very important, a chance for new leaders and new opportunities to emerge,” Chance previously said in a press release about the event.
