Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Election Code. Requires that a State central committee of a political party under Alternative A must be composed of 2 members from each congressional district (one male and one female) elected by the primary voters (now, one member from each district elected by the primary voters or by ward, township, and precinct committeemen). Applies to State central committees elected at or after the 2014 general primary. Provides that, if all of a party's candidates for State central committeemen or State central committeewomen from a congressional district are of the same sex, then the candidate receiving the highest number of votes shall be declared elected a State central committeeman or State central committeewoman from the district, and a vacancy shall be declared to exist in the office of the second member of the State central committee from the district. Provides that candidates for election or to fill a vacancy as State central committeeman or committeewoman under Alternative A, a person must have voted in 3 of the 4 most recent primaries of the political party operating under Alternative A. Makes the State central committeeman and committeewoman in a congressional district the members and co-chairpersons of that party's congressional committee. Effective immediately.
