On election day, students in Illinois will no longer have to worry about repercussions of missing school to vote, thanks to a new bill signed by Governor JB Pritzker. Effective June 1, this legislation allows students to be excused from school for up to two hours to vote in primary, general and special elections or any election in which propositions are submitted to a popular vote.
Students in Illinois will no longer have to worry about potential repercussions of missing class in order to vote, starting with November 2020 general election.
