Illinois Election Board Votes To Keep Trump On Primary Ballot

 January 31, 2024

The Illinois State Board of Elections ruled on Tuesday that former President Donald Trump could remain on the state's primary ballot.

Such a decision coming in a Democratic stronghold is sure to be a boost to Trump and his team.

The eight-member board that made the decision was made up of four Republicans and four Democrats.

They came to a unanimous decision.

Trump celebrated the verdict on social media:

“Thank you to the Illinois State Board of Elections for ruling 8-0 in protecting the Citizens of our Country from the Radical Left Lunatics who are trying to destroy it,” he said. “The VOTE was 8-0 in favor of keeping your favorite President (ME!), on the Ballot. I love Illinois. Make America Great Again!”

Do you think that Donald Trump has a shot in Illinois when it comes to the general election, or does it even matter if he's going to be on the ballot or not in such a blue state?
