You get a vote, you get a vote! Everybody. Gets. A. Vote. Thank you for sticking with me on that, but in all seriousness, the election is coming up fast and we need to be prepared.

what's new in illinois voting since 2020
Good news! Illinois lawmakers got to work on expanding voter access in 2021! The new laws enable curbside voding, ensure drop boxes will stick around, and ensures that people who are incarcerated are informed about their voting rights and have access to the ballot when eligible. Illinois also created a permanent absentee voting list, so that voters can enroll once and receive ballots by mail for all upcoming elections. Plus, the 2022 General Election Day, November 8th, will now be a state holiday!

Vote Save the Senate Fund
If we can increase our majority to 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. But that will only work if we also protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states like Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and New Hampshire.
