Urge your state representative to sponsor and support House Bill 4469, a bill that helps ensure that everyone who is eligible in Illinois to cast a ballot will actually have access to the vote.
House Bill 4469 calls on jail facilities across the state to have a plan for people detained pre-trial (and thus still eligible) to have access to the ballot, to exercise a right they already have. The bill also calls for eligible individuals leaving prisons and jails throughout the state to receive a voter registration form and information about their voting rights.
The bill supports our basic values in Illinois – the notion that everyone who is eligible should have the right to participate in our democratic system. Urge your state representative to sponsor or support House Bill 4469.
