Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Election Code. With respect to absentee ballots, requires that the ballot envelope clearly state that the voter must sign in a manner similar to his or her registration record signature. Requires that the voter supply his or her birth date and partial Social Security number on the ballot envelope. Requires that all rejected absentee ballots be counted, notwithstanding any provision of the Code to the contrary, and that the total number of rejected ballots must be reported to the State Board of Elections.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes everything. Reinserts Senate Bill 2015 with the following changes: requires an election authority to record the number of absentee ballots rejected due to a signature discrepancy (rather than counting all rejected absentee ballots) and report the number to the State Board of Elections.
