The Illinois State Board of Elections had already certified the Nov. 4 ballot that did not included the question on term limits.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner wanted a term limits referendum question on the ballot.
Rauner issued the following statement: “Pat Quinn, Mike Madigan and the Springfield career politicians won today, and the people of Illinois lost. But the people will have the final say. A pro-term limits General Assembly pushed by a pro-term limits Governor can put this critical reform in place any day they want. Illinoisans should have that in mind when they vote this November.”
