Illinois Petition Challenge Starts Monday, July 14, for Libertarian and Constitution Parties

This year, all three statewide minor party petitions were challenged in Illinois. The “record check” to examine each challenged signature starts on Monday, July 14, for the Libertarian petition and the Constitution petition. The process involves a representative of the challenger, and a representative of the petitioning group, sitting down together with an employee of the State Board of Elections, over a computer. The trio focuses on one signature at a time. For a statewide minor party petition, which can involve looking at 20,000 to 30,000 signatures, the process generally takes at least a week. Petitioning groups are told to have twelve workers on the scene.

This year, the process starts in the Springfield office of the Board for the Libertarians; and the Chicago office for the Constitution Party. Because the Board only has those two offices, the Green Party process can’t start this week, but will only commence when one of the others is finished.

  1. Five things the group could do on building a team:

    1) Self nominate your own name for US President (or a good friend of yours) on the USA Parliament’s “Presidential Debate Committee” so that you can vote for Hillary as #1 (right now she’s ranked #47) and help raise her ranking among the 48 POTUS candidates who are working together as a team (Go to this web site, follow the directions):

    2) Become a Donor MP (MP=member of parliament) by signing up and paying $3. so you have a vote on the national five executives and rules of the aforementioned organization.

    3) On the site, make sure your name is a member of the state in which you organize and begin to work in twelve population-balanced regions instead of 50 states of varying populations.

    4) Start to learn how ranked choice voting (RCV) in multi-winner districts (no single winners!) works and use this because it elects unlimited names in consecutive order instead of one person which is too small.

    5) Help this project by volunteering for free as a programmer or greeter for our team, or financially by buying voting shares on our news service:

  2. James, how is your comment related to the article about the Constitution and Libertarian Parties of Illinois? Why would I vote for Hillary Clinton? I’m conservative.
