State Representatives to Contact to End Crosscheck

(Last Updated 9/12/2017 9:30 PM CT)

While many our State Representatives have sent letters or signed on to Indivisible Chicago’s letter to the IL State Board of Elections, there are still many who have not spoken out despite repeated calls from Indivisible Chicago.  Representative Guzzardi will be releasing a letter to the Board and collecting signatures from other State Representatives.  We are asking constituents of those representatives who haven’t responded to call and urge their representative to sign on to Representative Guzzardi’s letter.  

IF AND ONLY IF YOUR REPRESENTATIVE IS ON THE LIST BELOW call them and ask them to sign on to Representative Guzzardi’s letter urging the State Board of Elections to remove Illinois from the Crosscheck system and to deny the Election Integrity Commission’s second request for data.

Suggested call script:

Hello, my name is [Name]. My zip code is [Zip Code] and I’m a member of Indivisible [Chicago or other group]. I’m calling because I am concerned about Illinois participation in the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck system. I understand that the decision is made by the IL State Board of Elections; however, Illinois Representative Will Guzzardi is preparing a letter to the Board urging them to withdraw Illinois from the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program. Crosscheck results are inaccurate and they discriminate against young and non-white voters. The system also has serious cyber security issues that put every Illinois voter at risk of identity theft. Will Representative/Senator [YOUR REP/SEN] sign on to Representative Guzzardi’s letter against this voter suppression tactic before the next Board of Elections meeting on September 18? Thank you for your time.
