Fair Elections for Illinois

Building A Strong Democracy in Illinois!

Illinois Deserves Government That Represents All of Us

Common Cause Illinois (CCIL) organizes, lobbies and builds coalitions to create a stronger democracy in the land of Lincoln. Common Cause Illinois believes that democracy is how a free society resolves its differences. And in order to do that well, we must all agree the process is fair, produces equitable outcomes, and reflects our communities, our values, and our priorities.

Join us as we work toward solutions that will reduce the influence of money in politics, hold public officials accountable, create a more representative government, and ensure that every vote counts and our elections reflect the will of the people.
