The right to vote in elections is an integral component to American political culture. Maintaining the date for primary voting as March 17th, 2020 has put citizens under an unnecessary burden of risk to vote during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, especially to members of the most vulnerable groups of Illinois residents such as senior citizens and the immunocompromised. We, the citizens of Illinois, implore Governor Pritzker and the Illinois Board of Elections to extend the polling date(s), and provide for further late mail-in ballots for those who cannot afford to go into polling stations to mitigate the risk and spread of the virus.
