Illinois GOP candidate Mark Kirk voted a little after 10 a.m. Tuesday morning in Highwood, not far from his north suburban home in Ft. Sheridan. He said hi to some kids playing in the gym of the community center on Green Bay Road en route to the room where the election was being held.

Talking to reporters afterwards, a chipper Kirk said "Well, I voted twice for Senate," a reference to the Illinois quirk where voters are filing the regular six-year term and the unexpired term of President Obama of just a few weeks.
