I don't know. It's something Illinois started when Republican Jim Edgar was fighting motor voter laws. People who registered that way were only allowed to vote on federal offices. Now, it's used for people who moved within the county and didn't update their registration address.
What?!? Head spins. If these people spent half as much time trying to find solutions to our problems as they do concoting these scams to hurt the citizens, well who knows how well of we'd all be. That is completely a new one on me. And you know, IL is always one of those states you think you don't have to pay any attention to because it's all good there.
Using it for people who haven't updated their address is fine with me, a way for people to vote and not worry about wrong votes for wrong school board or whatever. I still don't know why people can't just plug an address in a computer and get the right ballot for chrissake. It's rocket science perhaps, but we can do that now!
