Rauner’s proposal gets formal nod, delay for remap plan

Tuesday, Jun 17, 2014

* The State Board of Elections formally ruled that Bruce Rauner’s term limits constitutional amendment has enough signatures to qualify for the ballot. In other news

Another group that wants to alter political mapmaking was given more time to validate signatures. “Yes for Independent Maps” asked the panel to let it submit about 4,000 signatures for evidence. That was after local election authorities were asked for the names but didn’t receive them before a deadline. Some election officials were reluctant to approve more time because the group hasn’t met deadlines.

    Where is Pat Quinn on this issue? He always ends his speeches with the statement “The will of the people should be the law of the land”.


  2. - shore - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 1:56 pm:

    this is a dumb and cynical idea but that goes to the heart of your niche theory from yesterday.


  3. - Spliff - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 1:56 pm:

    I think you meant signatures, not votes.


  4. - Been There - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 2:00 pm:

    Any word on how the lawsuits are going against these?


  5. - Yellow Dog Democrat - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 2:06 pm:

    Cass:

    Quinn pushed for the original term limits amendment that was overturned by the court that leads Zorn and others to believe this one will get tossed too.

    Quinn still supports term limits.


  6. - VanillaMan - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 2:12 pm:

    We know all about Quinn on this issue, but he had let it molder long enough for someone in the Rauner camp to snag it to help portray Bruce as a populist too.

    Sometimes we do get a bipartisan agreement on something. Rauner ended up getting kudos on this instead of Quinn.

    This happens sometimes. There is a lot of agreement between these guys and whoever wants to stake out that bipartisan ground first and do it the right way, get electoral support for it, even though they agree on the issue and solution to the issue.

    I’m not sure I’m too keen with giving them more time. If they couldn’t get the signatures right to begin with then too bad. There was a process to follow and they failed.


  8. - VanillaMan - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 2:30 pm:

    I support the right for the people to put these things on the ballots, and for the authorities to use their discretions regarding how well they meet the criteria of the rules that are set up by people who don’t always support that right.

    I favor erring on the part of the people, not the process.


  9. - OneMan - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 2:45 pm:

    From what I understand, they challenged the rejections in the sample and didn’t get the voter data back from some election authorities until after the first deadline since they had to FOIA it.

    If you are going to centralize the review process (which I understand is a change this time around) it seems you should make it somewhat easier to challenge the review by having the data available.


  10. - Demoralized - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 3:07 pm:

    @OneMan:

    Thanks for the info. If that’s the case then the extension was more than justified.


  11. - OneMan - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 3:12 pm:

    Demoralized

    That info was from the pro folks, so it may have a bit of a bias on it, but it also seems like Illinois ballot logic as it were…

    Here’s an interesting take on the situation–

  13. - lake county democrat - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 4:03 pm:

    OneMan - the sample the Board analyzed was randomly selected by computer. Think how small the odds are that one examiner received a 14% valid selection and another received an 83% valid. Clearly this judging was an arbitrary process. Again, let’s let the media look at some of these ballots and give us an objective take.


  14. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 4:08 pm:

    === Think how small the odds are that one examiner received a 14% valid selection and another received an 83% valid. ===

    You’re falling for the spin of incomplete data.


  15. - walker - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 4:45 pm:

    In no way is blaming the ref going to work.

    A proper job of getting sufficient signatures, and then checking signatures prior to submission, would already have received approval.

    I agree that they should be given more time to try to plug the holes, only because of delays in receiving FOIA’d local information.


  16. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 4:52 pm:

    ===A proper job of getting sufficient signatures, and then checking signatures prior to submission, would already have received approval.===

    Exactly right. And I just got the breakdown on what the problems were. Subscribers will be told more tomorrow.

    Put it this way: The media has been completely spun by the remap group when it comes to readable or matchable signatures being the issue here. They’re not. Not even close. At all.


  17. - Angry Chicagoan - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 5:35 pm:

    Precisely the wrong way around. How predictable. Does this mean the parties will now get to pick their electorates instead of the politicians individually?


  18. - wordslinger - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 6:14 pm:

    The Rauner crew followed the rules and got it done no problem.

    The remap people came in with what they said were valid signatures “above 60%.”

    They knew they were in trouble from the start and now they’re spinning in hopes that their money people will blame the “arbitrary process” if their “above 60%” doesn’t hold up.

    They raised and spent a lot of money to come in with “above 60%.”


  19. - me - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 9:03 pm:

    One, if by land, and two, if by sea,….Term Limits are coming…..Term Limits are coming….One if by Land…Two if by sea….place the lanterns in the Illinois Capitol Dome….my gosh they are coming….Well boys, you better get used to it…they are coming…
