SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Toi Hutchinson (D – Chicago Heights) responded this afternoon after voting to override Governor Rauner’s veto of a plan to institute automatic voter registration in Illinois.
“Voting in America today is supposed to be a fundamental right enjoyed by all citizens,” Hutchinson said. “Years of hard work guaranteed that discriminatory laws and barriers were broken down to give women, people of color and lower-income voters the chance to have their voices heard. We should be working to advance these policies, making voting simple, easy and accessible for all.”
