How to Vote for Donald Trump if You Live in Illinois

As I mentioned a while back, I’ve decided to end my pledge to never vote again by voting for Donald Trump in the Republican presidential primaries. While Trump is far from a savior, his position on immigration is the only one that will ensure that America even survives as a nation past the next decade, plus his rhetorical skills have managed to inspire the greatest right-wing renaissance since Reagan.

But how do you vote for Trump?

It’s not a stupid question. As Anonymous Conservative points out, many of Trump’s supporters are tuned out of the political process due to disillusionment with the GOP cuckstablishment. A good many of them probably aren’t even registered to vote, or didn’t register prior to Trump’s ascendancy. The GOP primary elections have a disproportionate number of cuck voters, which explains why establishment hacks like Mitt Romney and John McCain manage to pull off wins despite conservative discontent.

As a result, I’ve decided to do my part and help my fellow Illinoisans with the electoral process.

Illinois has two things going for it that make voting in the primary worth it. The first is ridiculously lax party enrollment policies. Illinois’ primary is semi-open: you’re not required to declare your affiliation with the Republicans until you actually go to vote. Additionally, Illinois is holding its primary on March 15, which is early enough in the season that your vote will actually matter. (Contrast with my native New York, which won’t hold its primary until the end of April.)

If you’re not already registered to vote, you can do so by clicking here and following the instructions.

Note that if you don’t have a Illinois driver’s license or state ID (which I didn’t when I registered, because I had held on to my New York driver’s license), in addition to filling out the online registration form, you’ll have to print out your voter registration and mail it to your local election authority. Election authorities are run by county governments, with the exception of Chicago itself, which has its own authority independent of Cook County. You can obtain printable registration forms and find out where to mail them here.

The deadline to register for the primary is Sunday, February 14, one month before the election. Your voter registration must be postmarked by that date.

Registering to vote in Illinois was a cinch, for me anyway: it’s a world away from New York’s labyrinthine registration process. Watch the companion video to this article below:
