collins ss3 113017Yesterday, Senator Collins joined Senator Kwame Raoul, Senator Bill Cunningham, and other lawmakers and activists to call for the state to end its participation in the Crosscheck voter database. The right to vote is the right to participate in a democracy without fear of reprisal. No citizen should feel this right comes with the possibility of surveillance, or that their own personal security may be compromised by doing so. Collins pledged to support and co-sponsor any legislation that will opt Illinois out of this system.
