Since the 2010 Census, and through Illinois’ 2011 redistricting process and 2012 elections, the Citizen Advocacy Center has been an integral member of a coalition that is seeking to strengthen ties among political reform and civil rights organizations. Our latest collaboration involves advocating for Illinois to implement on-line voter registration in order to maximize opportunities for eligible voters to participate in elections.
Illinois recently passed HB 2418, which is a bill that involved many changes to the Illinois Election Code. One component was the approval of the implementation of an on-line voter registration system. The Citizen Advocacy Center, along with our coalition partners recently drafted a communication to the State Board of Elections highlighting criteria that we collectively believe will be important for general implementation and in the rulemaking process.
