Common Cause Illinois

Americans deserve open, honest, accountable government.

We’re working to deliver it.

Common Cause Illinois and its members are building a movement to fight back for a real and accountable democracy. After re-launching the state organization in 2012, we continue to advance landmark reforms to create a stronger voice for every Illinoisan, from improving access to the polls to getting big money out of politics. If you're interested in voting rights, campaign finance reform, or creating a government that works for the people, get involved with Common Cause Illinois to help build a movement for a great democracy.
