SB 1970 Bill SigningJust this week, a plan I sponsored to give students two hours during the school day to vote was signed into law.

During a "March to the Polls" which I attended alongside students from Thornton Fractional North High School and Thornton Fractional South High School, we got some push-back for the event, which was organized to allow them to go vote during school hours.

Some of those students joined me in Springfield last March to support legislation to give Illinois students two hours during school to vote.

Their passion helped to get it passed out of the General Assembly, and on Wednesday some of these students saw it signed into law at TF North. Together we are helping students throughout the state have more access to the polls. I couldn't be more proud to help them be the change they want to see in the world.
