Election 2010: Why you have no excuse not to vote!

The November 2nd election is extremely important, particularly for YOUR reproductive rights and access to sexual health care. Get out there and vote AND encourage your friends and family to make their voices heard as well! Less than 30% of Illinois voters turned out for the primary election, a 7% decrease from our already low turnout average. It's up to YOU to make a difference. There's no excuse not to!

ABSENTEE VOTING: For those of you who have conflicts with election day and can't make it to early voting, there's hope for you yet. Early voting by absentee ballot opened up on Thursday, September 23. Absentee ballots can be requested until October 28 by mail, or November 1 in person. And, a recent law passed in 2009 allows you to request an absentee ballot without any need to provide a reason for your absence. Equality Illinois Education Project, Rock the Vote, and Roosevelt University launched a "VOTE NAKED ILLINOIS" campaign to get more people talking about this exciting initiative that makes voting easier than ever. Check out the video below!
