We the Illinois Sepatation take separation very seriously. We are and have investigated several pathways to our own statehood or to be added onto another state.
With this being said I would like to bring up the new petition. We need 8 percent of the popular vote for the election still happening now. We will release the new petition Monday. Please do not redate and use old petitions. I do believe we can now start asking county boards to simply just put it on the ballot. "The Easiest Way"
This year we had 23 counties that have voted heavily in favor of separation. 2 more, Hardin and Edgar will make up their referendums soon. Edgar in April and we aren't sure when Hardin will yet.
Good things happen for those who work hard!!! Work hard for just a little bit with us on this and you can also vote for separation soon.
This is an advisory referendum so it doesn't just give us statehood. The overwhelming support should increase our chances so let's try taking it to our legislature as well.
Illinois Separation will begin working with each county to help you gain ballot access starting now!!!
Tomorrow we will discuss the pathway for the counties who have already voted.
