VI. Legislative Updates

Illinois: Signatures have been submitted to give voters a say in whether or not the Bloomington election commission should be folded into the McLean County clerk’s office. According to The Pantagraph, consolidating elections is broadly popular among local officials as a way to save money and reduce voter confusion, and the ballot question could end a long standoff between those who want to dissolve the BEC and those who favor moving all elections to a countywide election commission. The signatures were submitted by the Republican and Libertarian parties. County Democrats do not support the consolidation.

New Mexico: The Santa Fe city council has approved a charter amendment ballot question that would ask city resident whether to move the city’s elections from the spring to the fall.
