The Illinois Separation

Please join us in petitioning for Independence from our spiraling out of control state government. From a countless number of grievances, the large majority of people outside of the Chicago area believe us better suited to govern ourselves.

The Petition

  

  

How to fill out a petition in Illinois.

• After you download your petition, and you go to print your copies, you will need to set your printer to Legal Format. This will require you to have 8.5 by 14 paper stock. Your standard 8.5x11 paper will NOT work for this. 

 • Print your Petition, take a picture of it, and send it to the Illinois Separation so that we may confirm that it is correct. (We do not want anyone going through all the effort to collect signatures only to have the petition printed in the wrong size.)

• If you wish to save time, you can fill in the county name on your document on the computer, before printing, or it can be written in by hand so long as it is printed and legible. 

• You may fill out all your information on the petition, excluding your signature and the Notary information. It is very important that you DO NOT SIGN the petition until in the presence of a Notary. 

• At the very bottom of the petition is a section for numbering the petition. Leave this section blank. 

• Each petition must be signed in front of a Notary by the person who collected the signatures. All signatures on an individual sheet must be collected by the same person, and in person. You will not be able to leave the petition at a location to be picked up later.  • We are getting quite a few notary’s stepping up willing to donate their time for us, and we will be working with them to meet up with petitioners.

• All individuals that sign a petition must be a registered voter in the State of Illinois, and for the county on which sheet they are signing for the signature to be considered valid. If they say they aren’t registered but would like to sign, please encourage them to register to vote, and followup with them after they have done so.

• For each signature to be considered valid, all information must be filled out for the signer, and the information must be legible. Incomplete or illegible information will be considered invalid, and the signature may be thrown out. 

• This will be a large effort that will require us to build networks, communicate with each other, and stay dedicated through the process. Your efforts are appreciated as we fight to reclaim our state from one city.
