Emanuel controversy: what about early voting deadlines?

As I warned on earlyvoting.net, extended litigation of Emanuel’s candidacy could imperil early voting,which is scheduled to begin on January 31st.

The other shoe just dropped today.  Unless the Supreme Court can rule in a few days, it is difficult for me to see how election officials can get ready by Monday.  (Unless I am wrong, Chicago voters have the opion of voting on a DRE or using an opscan.)

By the way, UOCAVA ballots began to be delivered on January 8th. Presumably, Emanuel’s name is on those ballots which are already being voted.
