Protecting the Freedom to Vote...

To ensure democracy works for everyone, voting and elections must be free, fair, and accessible. That’s why Common Cause Illinois works on every step of the elections process: working to pass laws that ensure voters’ access to the ballot box, helping voters who are having trouble casting their ballots, and working with election administrators to ensure our voting systems and machines are safe, reliable, and secure. 

Working together across partisan divides, Americans are creating a 21st century democracy that works for everyone. Voters, whether regardless of their political party, believe in a democracy where everyone participates, their voice heard by their government and their vote counted fairly. Americans are fed up with political operatives who misuse laws to hold or gain power by manipulating the system. Voters want to choose representatives based on the strength of their ideas and character, and move away from the polarization that comes from these partisan power games. Together we can modernize our democracy and restore public trust in civic institutions by recognizing we the people are ultimately responsible for the government we choose at election time.
