(10 ILCS 5/7-10.3)
(from Ch. 46, par. 7-10.3)
(A) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (C)
of this Section, a candidate for delegate or alternate delegate to a national
nominating convention shall file with the State Board of Elections at the
time of filing the statement of candidacy described in Section 7-10, a
statement declaring the name of his preference for President of the United
States or that he is uncommitted.
(B) If more candidates for delegate or alternate delegate in a
congressional district than have been allocated to that district file
statements designating the same presidential candidate as their preference
for President of the United States, the presidential candidate so
designated or his authorized representative may, within 10 days after the
last day for filing such statements, file an affidavit designating which of
such candidates he wants to be listed on
the ballot as being committed to the presidential candidate. Candidates
for delegate or alternate delegate not designated on an affidavit by the
presidential candidate shall be listed on the ballot as uncommitted. In no
event may the designated person's filing of the affidavit leave fewer
candidates listed on the ballot as being committed to him than the number
of delegates or alternate delegates allocated to the district.
(C) The State central committee of a political party may
choose to file a statement with the State Board of Elections not less than
30 days prior to the first day for filing the statement of candidacy described
in Section 7-10, specifying that a candidate for delegate or alternate delegate
shall not be required to file an official declaration statement pursuant
to this Section.
If the State central committee of a political party specifies that any
such official declaration statement is not required to be filed by the
candidates for delegates and alternate delegates to the national nominating
convention of any such political party, then no such declaration statement
shall be required to be made.
