I talked to Connie Beard, Chair of the McLean County Republican Party. This is a local effort to counter the democrats who are doing the same thing. No voter fraud here folks.

Republicans around the State of Illinois should be calling for the immediate resignation of GOP Party Chair Tim Schneider if he had anything to do with the below. I’ve tried to confirm with someone in leadership if they did, nobody has answered phones or emails.
A reader sent me copies of what she received in the mail. She might have originally thought is was from BecVote.org – they are referenced. (Bloomington Election Commission) It wasn’t. It was from something called GOP Remote Vote in Peoria.
The flyer has a detachable postcard they want returned. The card claims to be able to get a mail-in ballot for you.
Here’s the problem: It comes pre-printed with your name, address and birth date:
They want you to add your cell phone number, email address, and SIGNATURE and then drop the postcard in the mail – after adding a stamp.
Identity theft anyone?
This is the reverse side:
If this is some organization impersonating the GOP it better become news very fast. Nothing is more stupid than this!
I know other people have received the same flyer. Don’t fall for it!
The return address on the flyer say Paid for by the Illinois Republican Party.
