052316CM0226 State Senator Steve Stadelman (D-Rockford) voted today to override Gov. Bruce Rauner’s veto of Senate Bill 250. The bill, passed earlier in the year with a large bipartisan majority, creates an automatic voter registration system to allow easier access to the democratic process at a significantly lower cost to taxpayers.

Stadelman issued the statement below following the veto override, which passed the Senate with a vote of 38-18.  

“This win-win proposal makes it easier for voters to become engaged in the democratic process while saving money for taxpayers,” Stadelman said.
