Illinois State Senate District 44 issued the following announcement on Jan. 30.

The following is a statement by Senate Republican Leader Bill Brady regarding new revelations that the Illinois Secretary of State’s office allowed approximately 4,700 16-year-olds to begin the voter registration process under the state’s automatic voter registration program.

“We are calling on the Illinois Secretary of State to suspend the AVR program until all glitches, known and unknown, are fixed. There clearly also needs to be an independent investigation into how these glitches occurred, why they were unreported and what can be done to ensure this never happens again. Our vote is our most cherished right in a democracy, and even just one illegal vote can tarnish the credibility of the entire system.”
