BREAKING NEWS – Springfield, Illinois – Illinois’ election board overruled an objection to former President Donald Trump’s eligibility to be on the state’s primary ballot.
The unanimous vote by the Illinois State Board of Elections, which is split evenly between Republicans and Democrats, comes after a recommendation that Trump be removed for inciting an insurrection. The board voted 8-0 that it did not have jurisdiction to determine whether Trump is constitutionally ineligible to appear on the ballot, reserving that power for the courts. Trump will remain on the ballot for the March 19 Republican primary.
Illinois State Board of Elections, went on to say, “We think it would be best if the citizens determined who was president, and this includes the dead voters in the Chicago area, that votes multiple times in local and national elections.”
