Register to Vote
The business community’s voice needs to be heard in this upcoming election, but you can’t vote if you’re not registered!
As an added value to your chamber membership we would like to help you register to vote by using our EZVote System on our website at www.illinoisprosperity.org to register online. Using the EZVote System, located under the Featured Tools, you will be able to fill out and download all the forms necessary to register to vote.
The business community has much at stake in this election and your voice needs to be heard! On Nov. 6, voters will elect not only a new president, but a new Illinois General Assembly in Springfield which will determine the course Illinois takes in regards to matters important to the business community.
Issues such as public pension reform, repealing the income tax hike, and real reform to the Illinois’ workers’ compensation system are all issues that are contributing to businesses moving out of the state and need to be dealt with next year.
Each and every one of these elected officials has the ability to positively or negatively shape these much needed reforms that are vital for our businesses, communities, and state to prosper!
In Illinois, you must be registered to vote by October 9th to be able to vote on Election Day. Registering is easy and takes only a few moments. You can get all the information you need and download a registration form by using the EZVote System on our website at www.illinoisprosperity.org.
Make sure your voice counts on Election Day – register to vote!
