Make a Plan to Vote

Important Illinois Constitutional Change

In Illinois, it is important for union members to Vote Yes for the Workers’ Rights Amendment.  The amendment would enshrine collective bargaining and the ability to negotiate hours, wages and working conditions in Illinois' constitution for all workers in both the private and public sectors

Lawmakers approved putting the measure on the ballot during the 2021 spring session. The resolution passed both chambers with bipartisan support: 49-7 in the Senate and 80-30 in the House. 

Illinois Supreme Court

There are two Illinois Supreme Court Justices up for election.  It is important to vote in these pivotal races.  In Washington, we have all seen the impact new Justices can have on decisions that are important to all Americans. 

Information on candidates up for election can be found here.


Voting Information from the AFL-CIO

The information below was provided by the AFL-CIO

Dear Union Member,

Elected officials make decisions that affect every aspect of our lives.

How do we get lower gas prices? What are they teaching in our schools? Can I get health insurance?

They even decide where to put stop signs and bike lanes.

I don’t know about you, but I want those decisions to be made by people I choose and trust.

So We are voting this year—are you?

The link above goes to our voting website, where you can look up your polling location, early voting information and everything you need to know to cast your ballot.

After you figure out how you’re going to vote, make a voting plan so that you don’t forget.

There are tight races all over the country, so your vote will make a difference—especially on the local level.  Check the polls, and see for yourself how close the numbers are.

So get out there and vote. Or stay home and vote, if you’re voting by mail. But vote!

In Solidarity,

Team AFL-CIO
