Illinois lawmakers discuss potential move to universal vote by mail

Members of the Illinois House Ethics and Elections Committee discussed a proposal Wednesday allowing counties to go primarily to a vote-by-mail system. In hearing looking at ways to expand access to the polls, they discussed a bill sponsored by state Rep. Carol Ammons, D-Urbana. She sits on the committee. The bill would allow counties to move to the vote-by-mail system. They would choose to send every registered voter a ballot instead of making them request one or go to a polling place.
