AN EFFORT TO SET UP AUTOMATIC VOTER REGISTRATION IN ILLINOIS IS MAKING SOME PROGRESS IN THE STATE LEGISLATURE.

 

THE BILL PASSED BY THE SENATE SIGNS PEOPLE UP TO VOTE WHEN THEY VISIT STATE FACILITIES SUCH AS THE SECRETARY OF STATE’S OFFICE, ALTHOUGH YOU’D HAVE THE OPTION OF OPTING OUT OF THE AUTOMATIC REGISTRATION. SENATOR ANDY MANAR OF BUNKER HILL SAYS THIS STREAMLINES THE NOW DUPLICATIVE PROCESS, SAVES THE STATE MONEY, AND GETS MORE PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THE ELECTORAL PROCESS.

 

 

SUPPORTERS SAYS AUTOMATICALLY SIGNING PEOPLE UP TO VOTE WOULD SAVE THE STATE AND COUNTY ELECTION CLERKS MONEY, STREAMLINE VOTER REGISTRATION AND GET MORE PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THE ELECTION PROCESS. THE MEASURE PASSED THE SENATE AND IF IT PASSES THE HOUSE…GOVERNOR BRUCE RAUNER SAYS HE WILL CONSIDER THE PROPOSAL.

 

 

OPPONENTS WORRY ABOUT VOTER FRAUD. THE BILL NOW HEADS TO THE HOUSE FOR A VOTE.
