(10 ILCS 5/6-35.03)
(from Ch. 46, par. 6-35.03)
The State Board of Elections shall design a registration
record card which, except as otherwise provided in this Section, shall
be used in triplicate by all election authorities
in the State, except those election authorities adopting a computer-based
voter registration file authorized under Section 6-79. The Board shall
prescribe the form and specifications, including
but not limited to the weight of paper, color and print of such cards.
Such cards shall contain boxes or spaces for the information required under
Sections 6-31.1 and 6-35 of this Code; provided, that such cards shall also
contain a box or space for the applicant's social security number, which
shall be required to the extent allowed by law but in no case shall the
applicant provide fewer than the last 4 digits of the social security
number, and a box for the applicant's telephone number, if available.
Except for those election authorities adopting a computer-based voter
registration file authorized under Section 6-79, the original and duplicate
cards shall respectively constitute the master file and precinct binder
registration records of the voter. A copy shall be given to the applicant upon
completion of his or her registration or completed transfer of registration.
Whenever a voter moves to another precinct within the same election
jurisdiction or to another election jurisdiction in the State, such voter
may transfer his or her registration by presenting his or her copy to the
election authority or a deputy registrar. If such voter is not in possession
of or has lost his or her copy, he or she may effect a transfer of registration
by executing an Affidavit of Cancellation of Previous Registration.
In the case of a transfer of registration to a new election jurisdiction,
the election authority shall transmit the voter's copy or such
affidavit to the election authority of the voter's former election
jurisdiction, which shall immediately cause the transmission of the voter's
previous registration card to the voter's new election authority. No
transfer of registration to a new election jurisdiction shall be complete
until the voter's old election authority receives notification.
Deputy registrars shall return all copies of registration record cards or
Affidavits of Cancellation of Previous Registration to the election authority
within 7 working days after the receipt thereof. Such copies or Affidavits of
Cancellation of Previous Registration received by the deputy registrars between
the 35th and 28th day preceding an election shall be returned by
registrars within 48 hours after receipt thereof. Such copies or
Affidavits of Cancellation of Previous Registration received by the deputy
registrars on the 28th day preceding an election shall be returned
deputy registrars to the election authority within 24 hours after receipt
