​​YOUR Republican Candidate for ​ILLINOIS 14TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT


We, the undersigned, members of and affiliated with the Republican Party and qualified primary electors of the Republican Party, in the Fourteenth (14th) Congressional District of the State of Illinois, do hereby petition that John Frank Burchardt who resides at 21664 Kelly Ann Lane in the Unincorporated Area of Shorewood, Zip Code 60404, County of Will and State of Illinois, shall be a candidate of the Republican Party for the nomination for the office of REPRESENTATIVE IN CONGRESS of the State of Illinois, for the Fourteenth (14th) Congressional District to be voted for at the general election to be held on March 20, 2018.

   Welcome to my online petition page.  I'll be honest, this is the FIRST attempt at simplifying the process and guaranteeing the accountability of OUR system.  Illinois has been moving their court systems filings on-line, but yet the voting system has remained antiquated in the past.  

   Why am I doing this?  There are multiple reasons, the most important of which is to protects your voting rights.  Lisa Madigan has informed me that until someone sues to stop me, no decision on the legality can be issued.  If we look at the past, politicians are always utilizing the courts in an attempt to eliminate  competition before the game begins. The legal attacks focus on signature validity and circulator behavior.


   If we acknowledge history, then there's no doubt that "The Hun's" first legal move will attack my non-human circulator. I've gone through the rules and the fact is that there's NOTHING that says you must use a Human to gather ballot access signatures.  I'm assuming if it's good enough for IL's Appellate Court system, it's good enough for our voting system.
