SPRINGFIELD — State Senator Kwame Raoul (D-Chicago 13th) voted to override the governor’s veto of a measure that creates a process to automatically register eligible voters when they visit facilities run by the Secretary of State’s office and other state agencies.
Raoul released the following statement after the Senate successfully overrode the veto of Senate Bill 250:
“Historically, disenfranchised populations have fought for their right to vote. Today’s vote continues to promote voter accessibility and streamlines the voting process for everyone in our state.”
