Photo Ballot Bill

18 June 2015 at Illinois Premier Boys State

Today, Senator Pat McGrath led the Boys State Senate in passing a new bill. This bill states that candidates on all ballot forms will now include a picture of the candidate. This addition to the ballot will help voters easily identify candidates. This bill, however, will not be enacted until the 81st annual Boys State. Although this bill has not been enacted in the 80th Boys State, next year’s campaigns will feature better candidate to voter relations. This is one of the many impactful bills introduced to the Boys State Congress.
