You have less than a week to cast your vote in one of the most consequential elections in modern history.
We hope you will join us in voting YES for the Fair Tax Amendment, which will benefit Illinoisans by raising revenue to invest in our schools and communities without burdening the middle class. The Fair Tax:
Brings fairness to our tax structure by finally asking millionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share.
Does NOT tax retirement income.
Only raises taxes on people and businesses making over $250,000/year. (Most small business owners earn under $250,000/year.)
You can find a list of all our IFT-endorsed candidates here, including Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, and we encourage you to take a look at who IFT has endorsed in your area, too.
If you’re voting by mail, please mail or drop off your ballot ASAP! Mailed ballots must be postmarked by November 3. If you’re voting early or in person on Election Day, stay safe by maintaining distance from others and wearing a mask.
Thank you for staying informed during this election season and for making your voice heard.
