Governor Pritzker Signs Democrats’ Sneaky Elections Omnibus Bill

The Governor signed Democrats’ overtly partisan elections bill into law this morning, not even two full days after it was filed in the House. Just yesterday the Governor said at a press conference that he hadn’t yet seen the details of the bill.

Aside from being passed with no transparency or time for public input, this law changes the election process mid-cycle and adds three non-binding (meaning Democrats don’t have to act on the results) referendum questions to the ballot, which is the maximum number allowed for statewide initiatives, just to block any potential citizen-driven referendum questions.
