Senate approves changes to state election law

May 30, 2013

The Illinois Senate has approved a multi-faceted change to the state's election laws. The legislation is almost as notable for what it does NOT do, as for what it does. IPR'S Brian Mackey explains.

The proposal would make dozens of changes to state law including online voter registration. But until Wednesday, the legislation also would have changed how Illinois gets a lieutenant governor.
