Automatic voter registration coming to IL

Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner signed a bill establishing automatic voter registration in the state. The bill will eligible citizens will now be automatically registered unless they choose not to be. If someone doesn’t want to be registered, they can contact their local driver’s license services. Proponents say the automatic registration will increase voter turnout. The bill will be implemented in phases which will be completed by the 2018. Last year, Rauner vetoed a similar plan.
