SPRINGFIELD - As reported by Illinois Radio Network, David Morrison of the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform said groups like his are delighted with a proposed amendment to the Illinois constitution that would make it easier for what the left calls "ballot access" and the right calls "voter fraud".
“This proposal would declare that procedures related to voting could not place a disproportionate burden on citizens who are also members of a protected category,” he told lawmakers. “It complements current state constitutional provisions and is wholly consistent with federal requirements for voting. It goes further by establishing rights and protections related to voting and voting procedures under Illinois’ state Constitution.”
The amendment, if it gets onto the state Constitution, would prohibit rules like photo-ID-to-vote laws. HJRCA 52 has passed the House Judiciary Committee, which is majority Democrat.
