The Northern Illinois voter encouragement program, Go Vote 815, has over 20 local coalition members, many of whom had representatives voice their endorsement of great voter activity and the Go Vote 815 initiative at the Mayor’s Press Conference, September 8, 2022. The League of Women Voters of Greater Rockford, Illinois is also a coalition member.
A coalition of community members from Galena to Joliet, Illinois is invited to join forces to insure every single citizen of voting age is registered to vote. Since a massive overhaul of the state voting laws in 2017 Illinois citizens are auto-registered to vote. Many do not realize this. Our task is to drive potential voters to a website that is a virtual compendium of knowledge for Illinois voters, the Illinois Voter Guide, created by the League of Women Voters of Illinois.
This QR Code is the ticket to the Illinois Voter Guide. It will be everywhere, distributed by our coalition members.
