VICTORY: Illinois Passes Online Voter Registration

Chicago_L

When a bill allowing for online voter registration passed through the Illinois Senate, the organization Chicago Votes knew the state was one step closer to creating a more innovative, open, and accessible democracy. That’s why Rebecca Reynolds and the Chicago Votes team created a MoveOn petition asking members of the Illinois General Assembly to support the bill. After the petition was delivered to representatives and senators across the state, the bill passed through the General Assembly and was signed into law by Governor Pat Quinn, creating a system that allows Illinoisans to register to vote with just a few clicks.
