Anne Marie filed a petition to be put on the ballot for the upcoming election yesterday morning at 8 am.
NPR Illinois reported Anne Marie's statement while waiting in line outside the Illinois State Board of Elections:
"We think of the political process as a big machine. And yet you don't think about the people who are standing out, carrying their little pieces of paper that they have gone out and knocked on people's doors, stood on street corners and said 'I want to make my case to the public, please sign my petition'."
Anne Marie would like to thank all the volunteers who collected signatures for the campaign over the last couple of weeks. "This was truly a collective effort", said Anne Marie on Tuesday.
