(605 ILCS 5/6-118)
(from Ch. 121, par. 6-118)
Every person elected or appointed to the office of highway
commissioner, and to consolidated township road district clerk in counties
under township organization and to district clerk in counties not under
township organization, before he enters upon the duties of his office, and
within 10 days after he is notified of his election or appointment, shall
take and subscribe, before some judicial officer of the circuit court or
district or town clerk, the oath or affirmation of office prescribed by the
Constitution, which oath or affirmation shall, within 5 days thereafter, be
filed with the district or town clerk.
In counties under township organization no additional oath shall be
required of the town clerk to enable him to enter upon the discharge of the
duties of his office as ex-officio clerk for the highway commissioner.
If any person elected or appointed to either of the offices above named
neglects to take and subscribe such oath, and cause the same to be filed as
above required, such neglect shall be deemed a refusal to serve.
