I understand the facts. Obama is the one behind this. He couldn't get the assault weapon ban so he moves on to another tact. What three branches? I see only one lately, the King

No, they would rather turn a blind eye to employee theft and incompetence. Isn't that the government way?

Bill allows schools to opt out as polling place

1 year ago from The Associated Press

The bill would let school boards determine if schools could be safely opened to voters

A new bill placed before the Illinois Legislature would let schools opt out of serving as polling places.

State Rep. Jack Franks of Marengo filed the legislation with the support of Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka.

Topinka calls the bill "common-sense legislation" that puts kids first, adding government buildings, churches or other options should be used as polling places.

The bill would let school boards determine if schools could be safely opened to voters. School boards would determine if they could enforce normal safety protocol on Election Day. School board officials would then file a written notice with local election officers if they couldn't.

Franks says allowing voters in schools is an unnecessary risk. He says "protecting children from harm is the most fundamental and basic duty of any government."
