(625 ILCS 5/3-100.2)
    Sec. 3-100.2. Electronic access; agreements with submitters.
    (a) The Secretary of State may require a licensee under Chapter 3 or 5 of this Code to submit any record required to be submitted to the Secretary of State by using electronic media deemed feasible by the Secretary of State, in addition to requiring the actual submittal of the original paper record. The Secretary of State may also allow a person or licensee to receive any record to be provided by the Secretary of State by using electronic media deemed feasible by the Secretary of State, instead of providing the original paper record.
    (b) Electronic submittal, receipt, and delivery of records and electronic signatures may be authorized or accepted by the Secretary of State, when supported by a signed agreement between the Secretary of State and the submitter. The agreement shall require, at a minimum, each record to include all information necessary to complete a transaction, certification by the submitter upon its best knowledge as to the truthfulness of the data to be submitted to the Secretary of State, and retention by the submitter of supporting records.
    (c) The Secretary of State may establish minimum transaction volume levels, audit and security standards, technological requirements, and other terms and conditions he or she deems necessary for approval of the electronic delivery process.
    (d) When an agreement is made to accept electronic records, the Secretary of State shall not be required to produce a written record for the submitter with whom the Secretary of State has the agreement until requested to do so by the submitter.
    (e) Upon the request of a lienholder submitter, the Secretary of State shall provide electronic notification to the lienholder submitter to verify the notation and perfection of the lienholder's security interest in a vehicle for which the certificate of title is an electronic record. Upon receipt of an electronic message from a lienholder submitter with a security interest in a vehicle for which the certificate of title is an electronic record that the lien should be released, the Secretary of State shall enter the appropriate electronic record of the release of lien and print and mail a paper certificate of title to the owner or lienholder at no expense. The Secretary of State may also mail the certificate to any other person that delivers to the Secretary of State an authorization from the owner to receive the certificate. If another lienholder holds a properly perfected security interest in the vehicle as reflected in the records of the Secretary of State, the certificate shall be delivered to that lienholder instead of the owner.
