Proof Fair and Honest Elections are Vital

Written by IFA Staff Report

While we are working to get the best conservative candidates across Illinois on the ballot for election or re-election in 2022, there is a reality we must deal with: doing all we can to ensure our elections are conducted fairly and accurately.

In Illinois we have seen serious election integrity issues in DuPage, Kane, and Peoria counties, and of course there are historic problems in Chicago and Cook County.… Continue Reading

As a result of the legal proceedings in the Macon County Sheriff election, the ballots were recounted.… Continue Reading

Macon County Sheriff Election: Irregularities in Elections (Part 1)

Written by Kristi Shaffer

The right to vote is nearly sacred in the United States. Elections are closely monitored for an accurate count and assurance that the voices of the people are heard. At least that is the intended outcome of the election process, but, far too often, things go awry. Many of us watched back-and-forth recounts, audits, and legal battles in various states over the 2020 presidential election. However, there was a battle right here in Illinois for election legitimacy of which few were aware.… Continue Reading

Biden and Corporate Wokesters Assault Election Integrity Laws

Written by Ken Blackwell

Corporate titans tripping over themselves to be “woke” by condemning election integrity laws like Georgia’s S.B. 202 are failing in their duty to focus on running their companies profitably, ironically instead pushing an agenda that other nations show destroys private business under one-party socialist rule.

As a shareholder in the ownership of a major sports franchise and a former partner in a broadcast company, I could do whatever I want with profits once they were in my personal pocket.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: How To Swing an Election, Illinois Style

Written by David E. Smith

Two hundred and two years after achieving statehood, Illinois – the Land of Lincoln – is more commonly associated with political and electoral corruption than with Honest Abe.

Written by Jane Ryan Carrell

A September 2019 article in The Atlantic describing a new way of voting for candidates bears the headings “A step toward blowing up the presidential-voting system” and “Maine’s adoption of ranked-choice voting could upend a close race for the White House.”

Under Ranked-Choice Voting, sometimes abbreviated here as RCV, the voter lists candidates in order of preference.… Continue Reading

Old Fashioned and Modern Day Election Fraud

Written by Jane Ryan Carrell

Let’s look at some of the early forms of election fraud.  A historian might tell us of elections two centuries ago, but we won’t go back that far. Instead, let’s consider forms of fraud practiced in Chicago in the Richard J. Daley era: the fifties, sixties and early seventies. Daley died of a heart attack Dec. 20, 1976 at the age of 74, after being elected in 1975 for his sixth 4-year term, holding office until his death.… Continue Reading
