Voter Engagement and Registration
Indivisible Illinois aims to increase voter awareness, voter registration and voter turnout for every election at the federal, state and local levels. We do this by working in coalition with other grassroots partners to host candidate forums, deputy voter registrar trainings, voter registration drives and other public events that are open to all. We believe that more civic engagement will lead to a more representative government that works for the people.

Why is Voter Engagement and Registration important?
The short answer: the more voters we register, the more voters we can turnout on Election Day. But voter registration is also about ensuring that every American can be an active participant in our democracy.
