Trump Illinois Election Ban Bombshell Revealed

It has been noted that the legal challenge seeking to bar former President Trump from the 2024 primary ballot in Illinois failed via The Gateway Pundit.



This took place a day after the Massachusetts Supreme Court denied a petition to bar Trump from the 2024 ballot. In a unanimous vote, the State Board of Elections said they lacked the authority to bar Trump from the ballot.

The legal challenge that was brought by a group of Illinois voters, cited the 14th Amendment in their lawsuit seeking to bar Trump from the ballot. The legal theories are based on Section 3 of the US Constitution’s 14th Amendment which states public officials who have “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against” the US may be disqualified from public office.

Trump has not been charged with engaging in insurrection or rebellion against the United States.

ABC News reported:

Donald Trump can remain on Illinois’ presidential primary ballot, the State Board of Elections voted on Tuesday, dismissing another challenge to the former president’s eligibility under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.

The eight-person, bipartisan board voted unanimously against a lawsuit brought by a group of Illinois voters represented by national watchdog group Free Speech for the People and Illinois elections lawyers.

The body said it lacked the authority to decide on the challenge.

President Trump is currently facing legal challenges in various states, including Maine and Colorado. Recently, the Maine Superior Court ordered Trump to be put back on the ballot while awaiting a decision from the US Supreme Court.

Last Tuesday, Trump filed an appeal to the state superior court after Maine’s Secretary of State, Shenna Bellows, banned him from the 2024 ballot. Bellows had made the decision to bar Trump from the ballot, citing his alleged involvement in the insurrection.
