yep, lots of people in southern illinois refuse to vote in presidential elections as they know their votes "don't count" as chicago has the lions share of the vote and votes overly D.
it would be great if illinois 20 electoral votes were to be awarded as a percentage of the popular vote. would be real easy...get 5% of popular vote, let an EC vote. get 100%, get 20 votes. get 4%, get 0 votes.
this would accurately reflect the will of the people and would stimulate greater turn out. sadly, that is exactly what our ruler for life does not want.
voter suppression is alive and well in illinois. if it was a GOP state it would be the poster child of bad everything but since it is DEM it is allowed to fester.
Madigan, Pritzker, Durbin, Biden.
