The IFI Voter Guide is a great tool for educating church members, neighbors, friends and family and a not-so-subtle reminder of the importance of voting. They are especially effective when handed directly to people. Call the IFI office to order several to hand out to your church members, neighbors, family, and friends – (708) 781-9328. Or click HERE to order a bunch.
Moreover, we want to encourage you to vote your values, which should mirror what God says in His Word about righteous officials verses wicked officials (Proverbs 29:2), and especially those who cheer the shedding innocent blood (Psalm 106:38). In this election, the differences are very obvious. Still, it will require a little study and prayer to know who you’ll want to vote for in this cycle.
While the November 8th General Election is less than 45 days away, early voting will begin at designated locations next Thursday, September 29th. Additional early voting sites begin on October 24th. As in every election cycle, this election is critical for Illinois as well as for the nation, and it is crucial that your voice is heard. We cannot emphasize strongly enough how important it is to exercise your civic duty to vote and be good stewards of God’s amazing gift of self-government.
With this much time to cast our ballot, there is simply no good excuse for not voting in this (or any) election!
Vote by Mail
Plain and simple, vote by mail can lead to folly. Vote by mail used to be called absentee voting. But many states, including Illinois, are now using it as the norm. By all means, if you’re unable to physically vote in person, request a vote by mail ballot, but mail it back quickly.
But for those who are able to vote in person, here’s what we recommend:
1.) Request a vote by mail ballot (VBM). Click HERE. Follow the prompts to download a VBM ballot.
2.) Take your VBM ballot to an early voting location. Note: search under the county where you live for locations. But if you live in the cities of Aurora, Bloomington, Chicago, Danville, East St. Louis, Galesburg, Peoria, or Rockford, search under those cities.
3.) Surrender the VBM ballot. Ask the judge to write across the VBM ballot “SPOILED.” Then vote in-person immediately.
According to our Friends at the Illinois Conservative Union and their Election Integrity Program, this is the best way to secure your vote and limit any folly.
Vote by Mail applications are already being accepted by your local County Clerk.
