Suburban Cook County Sees Surge In Registered Voters

CHICAGO (CBS)--As mid-term elections approach, Suburban Cook County has already set a record for registered voters, with 1.5 million already signed up to vote this year.

That's compared to ten years ago, when just 1.3 million voters had signed up by election day in Suburban Cook County.
