These are unconstitutional voter suppression bills. They attempt to require all voters to show a voter ID or not be allowed to vote.

All the House bills are identical. The Senate bill is similar with language added about how to handle expired IDs.

Apparently the Republican House caucus was not talking to each other and filed the same bill five times, three times on the last day to file a bill, 2-14-20. Rep. Thomas Morrison filed the same bill twice on the same day. Rep. Darren Bailey Chief Co-Sponsored the same bill twice. More proof the ILGA legislators and their staffs don’t read the bills. What a waste of taxpayers money.

The Illinois Green Party full-throatedly urges the Illinois Legislature to oppose voter suppression bills (HB5282/HB5372/HB5377/SB3691/HB4227/HB4237).
