Chance the Rapper has led hundreds of people from a concert he headlined through Chicago's business district and to an early voting site.

Chance and other entertainers performed Monday afternoon at Petrillo Music Shell in Grant Park. The event sponsored by his nonprofit group Social Works was geared toward millennial voters, who have been crucial in recent elections.

Afterward, Chance led the crowd through rush-hour traffic to the voting site, where a long line of voters was already waiting to cast ballots. Chance went inside the polling place and voted. Chance retweeted a number of videos shot from the scene (see below).

Officials said anyone in line by 7 p.m. local time would be allowed to vote.

Illinois' State Board of Elections says nearly 1.3 million people cast in-person early ballots through Sunday, surpassing turnout in previous presidential contests.
