Americans for Prosperity, Illinois: Needing YOUR Help for the Primaries

AFP-IL is part of broad, growing coalition that has come together in effort to change Illinois politics in a big way.

For the last 3 decades, legislators have created their own districts after drawing a name out of hat!

Illinois is the ONLY state in the nation that allows this magic trick to determine such an important issue. Instead of the people choosing legislators, the legislators choose the people. This leads to a failing system of government that is not responsive to the people.

LETS TAKE BACK OUR GOVERNMENT! The Illinois Fair Map Amendment will take redistricting out of the hands of the legislator and put into the hands of in independent commission, making the process more transparent, fair and accessible to the public.

We need to collect 500,000 petition signatures by April 1, 2010. WE NEED YOUR HELP!

On Primary Day, February 2, 2010 we have an excellent opportunity to collect signatures from registered voters at polling place.


Whatever time you have, a few hours or the whole day, will be very helpful.

Frequently asked questions about this effort:

Will I receive training on how to use this opportunity to gather signatures and why the Fair Map Amendment is critical to reforming the process of redistricting in Illinois?

Will there be petitions available?

Will I have my own clipboard and identifying badge or button?

Will I get lunch and a travel stipend?
