Election Integrity
is the Foundation of
a Strong Democracy

Welcome to the Illinois Ballot Integrity Project

We believe that free, fair, honest and accurate elections are central to each and every crucial issue facing our state – and our nation – today. All these issues are the spokes in the wheel of our future. How that wheel turns and in what direction it takes us is determined by elections.

No matter what issues resonate with you, your vote is the vehicle to make a more just, equitable society.

But without our right to vote, the opportunity to correct societal ills will pass us by.

Please join Illinois Ballot Integrity on this journey to secure our most fundamental democratic rights. We invite you to explore our website to learn more!

Support Fair, Honest & Accurate Elections

Our VOTE is our VOICE! If we do not protect the security of our vote, we will lose our ability to be heard.

The road to democracy has been hard fought — and that fight must continue. Throughout our nation’s history, those who have stood up to defend our right to vote and be heard — Abolitionists, Suffragettes, Union Organizers, Civil Rights Marchers, Anti-War Protesters and more — all have shared the same disappointments, discouragements, disasters and defeats; and when they finally succeeded, shared in the same victories—victories for all Americans. Our engagement in the electoral process honors their efforts— as we stand up to carry that mantle forward into the 21st century!

This is our call to action! Upholding and strengthening our fragile democracy depends on concerned citizens who understand how the current voting system works, who can identify what the actual vulnerabilities are, and who can see what changes must be made so our system is transparent, verifiable and accurate.

Solutions come from the people-they always have.
America now faces another crisis that threatens our elections.
It is time for a new beginning – time to take back our democracy.

Let’s protect our right that our voices will be heard.
Let’s protect our fundamental freedom–
The right for secure elections.
