CHICAGO – Jesse Jackson Jr.’s publicist said the ailing Illinois congressman has voted by absentee ballot.

However, Kevin Lampe said in a statement that Jackson won’t hold an election night event next week.

Jackson has been at Minnesota’s Mayo Clinic for treatment for bipolar disorder.

He recently checked in for the second time and there’s been no indication of when he’ll return to work.
