Governor Signs Automatic Voter Registration, Immigration Laws

Statement from Governor Rauner

You’ll be automatically registered to vote the next time you get a new drivers license in Illinois.  Governor Rauner yesterday signed an automatic voter registration law to make it easier for people to update their voter information.  The governor also signed a new law that stops state law enforcement agencies from asking immigration questions or holding people simply because of an immigration violation.  Critics say that law essentially turns Illinoisinto a sanctuary state.
