Illinois – Legislators Loosen Party Contribution Limits, and Tighten Elector Control

 In Blog, Updates

HB4488, a bill to require ‘faithful’ presidential electors and permit unlimited party contributions, has passed the Illinois Legislature and is expected to be signed by the Governor.  Currently, Illinois is one of several states that does not explicitly require their presidential electors to cast a vote for the winner of the state’s Presidential election, a practice affirmed as constitutional following the 2020 elections.  Additionally, the state currently limits party contributions at the primary stage, while they are unlimited during the general.  If this bill is implemented, Illinois would then require electors to vote for the state’s victor, and permit unlimited party contributions throughout an election.
