Anti-Voter Suppression Amendment Advances Illinois House Committee


An Illinois House committee has unanimously advanced a proposed constitutional amendment intended to prevent attempts at voter suppression.

 

House Speaker Mike Madigan introduced the measure, which would prohibit any law or regulation that winds up limiting voter rights on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, income or other factors.

 

Madigan says other states have imposed rules that “disproportionately” affect the poor and minorities.

 

If the full House and Senate approve, the amendment will go before voters in November.
