The easiest way to do it is to open another tab to the dashboard, log in, and then click on mauserme's witness slip link. When you click on mauserme's link, that will open up another tab, right on the bill that needs action and you will be signed in to ILGA so the slip will be pre-populated with whatever information you put in your profile.

Is it advisable to file a written statement or just check the "record of appearance only?" And if the former, are there guidelines for submitting a statement?

If you're doing an electronic witness slip then check "record of appearance only" since there is no way, via electronic witness slip to link a written statement to your witness slip.

Then you'll need to register on the my.ilga.gov website. It'll make filling-out witness slips a heck of a lot easier for you...

How come when I go to the mylga.gov link above all I get are the bills I did a witness slip for last year. Still can't figure out how to do the current ones from the dashboard.

The easiest way to do the current bills is to first make sure you log in to your my.ilga.gov account. Then, go back to MauserMe's Call To Action page on this site which lists all the currents witness slips we need to fill out, and the recommended position on each. Open each bill you'd like to fill a witness slip out for in a new window and take it from there. It's actually easier than it sounds...

Just a reminder - please do not misrepresent yourself when filing witness slips.  If you are not designated and authorized to represent a group in an official capacity, please do not say that you are.   Just because you are a gun owner doesn't mean that you represent all gun owners.  In most cases, each of us is only filing a witness slip on behalf of our self.

question as its been a few months since I filled these out before. Under "TESTIMONY" there are three choices. Oral, written and Record of appearance only. 

 

Since I won't be there, which do I choose? Sorry as I did just reread the how to at the beginning of this post. Thanks for any help.

I think the easiest thing would be to create a new e-mail account just for the witness slips, just my opinion, or you could do forwarding like RoadyRunner suggested, but you still have to create a new e-mail account.

They just tested it and say a hyphen should work as long as there are no spaces before or after it. I'd say give it another try.

My last name also has a hyphen in it. I signed up a few years ago so take what I say in persective. The only way I could get account here was to drop it. Now as a example if someones name is O'leary, you can change that to O leary and the system will take it. I've had this issue all my life since computers have dominated our lives. good luck

How do you get to the area to view who filed slips on the legislation?

I believe you have to click on the magnifying glass icon next to the Bill number. I don't know if you have to be logged in to see them though.

mauserme now creates a "Progress Tracker" post with the links.  Its a lot of work for mauserme, but its the easiest way (for everyone else), to track who filed witness slips and the current tally.  

 

The only way I know how to do it is to start with the bill number, go to ILGA.gov, type in the bill number in the search field, that brings up the bill status page.  There will be a section near the top titled Hearings.  The hearing section will tell what committee it is scheduled to be heard in, it also gives you a location.  Then go to the ILGA dashboard, choose which chamber the bill is in - either senate or house, click on "Committees", click on the gavel icon, choose the meeting time and location that matches the hearing section information from the bill's status page, click "View Legislation", the bills are listed in numeric order, find the bill you want to view and click on the magnifying glass icon from the "Witness Slips" column.

That's pretty much it.

The only thing I do differently is to check at least once a day for new hearings and keep a running list. By the end of the week I usually know exactly which bills we'll take action on and already have the post formatted with links, ready to go.
