The Illinois Green Party wants to thank all of our candidates, their campaign staffs, and their supporters for continuing the struggle to bring peace and economic, social, racial, environmental, and democratic justice to all the people of Illinois.
The following are the preliminary unofficial results. This is an unusual year to say the least. As always the final counts won’t be certified by the State of Illinois until next month, this year that date is December 4, 2020. The other important date to be aware of is the last day for the local election authorities to receive mail-in ballots postmarked no later than November 3, 2020, this year that day is November 17, 2020. As a result of such a high percentage of mail-in ballots cast due to the pandemic, and the President of the US slowing down US mail delivery in an attempt to cause some mail-in ballots to not to arrive in time to be counted in battleground states with shorter grace periods, we may be seeing these preliminary unofficial results slowly changing up until November 17, 2020.Read more
Note that while the deadline for your County Clerk to receive your mail-in ballot is November 17th, your mail-in ballot must be postmarked by Nov. 3rd.

2020-08-16: The Illinois Green Party Coordinating Committee Endorses the Fair Tax Amendment
The Illinois Green Party believes the proposed change in the State Constitution to allow a graduated income tax structure is an idea that is long overdue and should be supported by the voters.
Today, only about one third of the states have a flat income tax as now exists in Illinois. Such taxes impose the same percentage tax on a multi-millionaire as on a janitor. Furthermore, the legal deductions and credits that are usually available to those in higher income brackets often make tax rates for the wealthy actually lower than those of the middle income and poorest citizens.
In the spring of 2019, the General Assembly passed, and the Governor signed, legislation that would leave it up to the voters to approve fairer tax rates. When you vote on November 3rd, 2020, vote “Yes” to allow this change to become legal.Read more
