Independent Map Amendment petitions available NOW


By Cynthia Grau/WJEZ News

Individuals wishing to pick up petition forms and collect signatures for the Independent Map Amendment initiative may do so here at the Livingston County Farm Bureau. Completed petitions also may be returned to the local office.

IFB and the Livingston County Farm Bureau are working with the coalition to reach the goal of gathering 600,000 signatures of registered voters by April 2016. The Illinois Constitution requires that any petition seeking to amend the Legislative Article of the Illinois Constitution gather at least 290,216 valid, registered voter signatures.

To gather the necessary signatures, the Livingston County Farm Bureau is asking interested individuals to circulate, collect and return petitions to the Livingston County Farm Bureau office.

Once completed, the petition sheet should be signed by the person circulating the petition and notarized and returned to the Livingston County Farm Bureau no later than December 2015.
