It is ridiculous to vote 6 weeks before an election. Some races are contested and debates have not even taken place.
Do you even know every office that will be on your ballot?
Early voting is a scam to steal your vote by making sure you are informed.
Just wait, the ballot box will still be around when you are informed.
If you refuse to vote in a primary you are making sure you have no good choices in November. It is the people who don’t want to pick a party that assure good people are defeated.
Picking a party ballot doesn’t make you a member of any party. Illinois doesn’t have registered Democrats or Republicans.
If you have elderly relatives, make sure nobody “helps” them vote by mail that you don’t know!
