March to the Polls to encourage women, young voters Saturday
CHICAGO (WLS) --
Thousands of people took to the streets in Chicago today for the March to the Polls.
The event is a push to get women and young voters to make their voices heard on Election Day.
A rally before the march included speakers and live music. Candidates and campaign representatives also attended.
Speakers at the rally addressed the importance of voting, income inequality, gun violence, women's rights and education affordability. A student from Marjorie Stoneman-Douglas High School, the site of a deadly mass shooting in February, also spoke.
At one point during the rally, a group of women dressed as Handmaids from Margret Atwood's "The Handmaid's Tale" gathered on stage as a speaker discussed abortion rights.
Videos from Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren were also played for rally attendees.
