- If you are only voting on a referendum, you do not need to pick a party.
- County sample ballots available here: http://www.mcleancountyil.gov/elections
- City of Bloomington sample ballot available here: http://www.becvote.org/wordpress/electiondatesandoffices/specimen-ballot/
Picking a party because the candidates you want to vote for are running in that party does NOT make you a registered anything. Illinois doesn’t have registered members of any party.
