ILVOTE is certified through the Illinois State Board of Elections as a bona fide State Civic Organization for voter registration purposes. In addition, ILVOTE works to increase voter awareness and promote voter turnout for every election at the federal, state and local levels. We achieve our goals by working in coalition with other grassroots partners to host forums, deputy voter registrar trainings and voter registration drives that are open to all. We encourage individuals to take initiative and do voter registration and awareness whenever possible in their daily lives. We believe that an engaged and informed electorate leads to a successful democracy.
To establish certification for ILVOTE in your jurisdiction and to find out how you and members of your community can become deputy voter registrars through your election authority, please contact Leni Manaa-Hoppenworth at [email protected]com.
