SINCE YOU LAST VOTED…
Since 2020, it’s gotten easier to cast your ballot in Illinois. Here are the changes that are making your life easier:
When making a plan to vote…
- Curbside voting is here to stay, as are drop boxes.
- Election Day 2022 is now a state holiday!
- Incarcerated persons will now receive information about voter registration in their final year in confinement and get clear instructions on how to vote once they are eligible.
- There’s now a “permanent absentee voting list”, which means you won’t be taken off of it unless you move counties or states. So, if you’ve requested your absentee ballot this time, you won’t need to do so again in future years!
Vote Save the Senate Fund
If we can win 52 Senate seats in 2022, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s refusal to change the filibuster won’t matter. We can elect a Democratic majority that takes decisive action on raising the minimum wage, forgiving student debt, fighting climate change, protecting reproductive freedom, and more. We need to protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states and support challengers in winnable states. You can start today by donating here to directly support eight of the most competitive Senate races of 2022.
