GRASSROOTS GROUP PURSUES ELECTION LAW VIOLATORS IN ILLINOIS
The State Board of Election’s total disregard for the security of the voting systems under its jurisdiction has only made us more determined. If they won’t do their job by protecting our elections from fraud, then we’ll happily do it for them! The vulnerability assessment and our related investigations continue, and Defend the Vote will not stop until we get results. The letter below represents the next step in the process to hold the Illinois State Board of Elections accountable for failing to keep the voting systems in Illinois secure and legally certified. In fact, they’re guilty of manipulating policy so they can use election machines that have never passed the 2002 voting standards, as required by Illinois Law!
This letter will be discussed at the December 17th Illinois State Board of Elections’ Board meeting which will be held in Chicago and Springfield simultaneously. We have given the Board a month to reply. Our next step will be to file a motion in court to compel them to follow Illinois election code. If you can help to raise money to support this legal effort, please make a donation to Defend the Vote. As a grassroots organization, we rely on contributions to accomplish our mission to clean up corrupt election in Illinois.
This is important work where even a small amount of money can make a huge difference. The integrity of our government depends on accurate election results, and Defend the Vote has made great strides in cleaning up elections in Chicago and Suburban Cook County. Imagine what other illegal and insecure election practices we could uncover with better funding!
Speaking of investigations, we recently uncovered new evidence of the total lack of election security for Chicago and Cook County voters. We are preparing the report now, so stay tuned for the article!
