Daley already voted, won’t be seen election day

Updated: September 24, 2012 6:25AM

How will Mayor Daley spend his first Election Day off the ballot in more than 20 years?

Well, don’t expect to see him at a South Loop polling place on Tuesday.

Daley, who cast a ballot in early voting, has already voted for his replacement.

And you’ll have to wait until Wednesday to get Daley’s take on the results.

The mayor will not be granting interviews or making a public appearance Election Day, Daley spokeswoman Jackie Heard said in a text message.

“RMD voted early; he will use the long weekend + Tues to spend time w Maggie,” Heard wrote.
