Just Democracy Coalition statement on AVR veto, August 15, 2016

Asian Americans and immigrants across Illinois are involved in this campaign because we know that the right to vote in this country was a hard fought battle from its beginning. Automatic Voter Registration increases access to the ballot box, which is a crucial step to a more engaged electorate. Combined with the recent lawsuit attempting to stop Election Day Registration, this veto signifies a step backwards for voting rights in Illinois.

Statement on veto of Automatic Voter Registration

Just Democracy Illinois will work with our allies from both parties to override this veto. Now is not the time for Illinois to move backward on voting rights.
