Illinois voters will see only one ballot measure this year
By Bailey Ludlam
SPRINGFIELD, Illinois: The petition drive deadline has passed and the legislative session for 2010 has ended. Only one measure has been certified for November 2, 2010 statewide ballot in Illinois. Two citizen initiatives were proposed but failed to collect signatures for the May 3 deadline. Several legislative-referrals to the ballot were proposed this year but all have either been placed on hold or were defeated; with the exception of one. The Governor Recall Amendment will appear on the ballot. The proposal, also known as House Joint Constitutional Amendment 31, would allow voters to recall the governor and require that at least 20 state representatives and 10 state senators, equally balanced from each party in each chamber, sign a notice of intent to recall the governor before a petition can begin to be circulated.
In order for the amendment to be adopted, 60 percent of voters must approve the measure.
On the November 2, 2010 statewide ballot: November 2:
|Governor Recall Amendment||Admin of Gov't||Allows voters to recall the governor|
