Automatic Voter Registration Passes Illinois Senate

By Abe Scarr
State Director

Today, the Illinois State Senate passed Illinois PIRG-supported Automatic Voter Registration (AVR) legislation with bi-partisan support, 42-16. It now moves on to the House.

Building bi-partisan suport has been a priority for our coalition, Just Democracy Illinois. Every American, Democrat, Republican, Independent, has a fundamental right to vote and to have their vote counted. AVR not only promises to add more eligible Illinois voters tp the rolls, but will make our voter lists more accurate and secure- and save taxpayers money over time. Those are outcomes everyone can get behind.
