Referendum Round-Up


Efforts by members of McHenry Citizens TaxWatch helped in the defeating of TWO TAX REFERENDUMS on the ballot at the election held on April 9, 2013. The McHenry County referendum to establish a new taxing body was defeated by a 20,526 to 11,075 vote, saving taxpayers $60 a year on their property tax bills. The McHenry High School (D-156) referendum was defeated by a 4273 to 2338 vote, lowering the tax bills by $14 for district home owners.

State Law / State Referendum / Transition of Township Duties

Please consider supporting the following:

  1. A state law making holding two or more offices simultaneously illegal. Or a binding state-wide referendum for the following question: "Should Illinois Law Permit An Individual To Hold Two Or More Offices Simultaneously?".
  2. A binding state-wide township referendum for the 2014 General Election giving citizens an opportunity to either keep or eliminate their township government. Voters would have a yes or no vote on the township they reside in.
  3. Clarification of State Law and the Township Code involving the transition of township government was dissolved.

Keep in mind that referendums are a good thing. Referendums gauge public opinions. To change State Law or to achieve ballot access for referendums, citizens must get involved.
