Independent Maps Amendment – Sign the Petition!

Help put the Independent Map Amendment on the ballot by signing a petition and help bring change to the Illinois state redistricting process.

Illinois Farm Bureau has announced support for the amendment and encourages members to sign the petition.

The Independent Map Amendment will create an independent redistricting commission to draw Illinois legislative districts. The process will ensure maps are drawn by an unbiased third party, not based on political affiliation and prior election results. Districts will be compact, contiguous, and impartial to party or incumbency. It also sets out guidelines that districts should follow county, township, and municipal boundaries as much as possible.

Any Illinois registered voter can sign the petition. Copies area available at the McLean County Farm Bureau office 2242 Westgate Drive in Bloomington.
