(Chicago, IL) — A federal judge is blocking election-day polling place voter registration in Illinois. The ruling means that densely populated areas of Illinois like Chicago will not be allowed to sign voters up in the polling places this November as they did on the day of the March primary. Governor Rauner says he doesn’t want to offer an opinion on an issue of pending litigation, but he said he does favor expanding access to voting, so long as federal laws are followed. Republicans filed suit claiming the law is unfair because voters in less-populated areas don’t have equal access. There could be an appeal.
