Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 18-2. In any municipality operating under Article 6 of this Act, the election polls shall be open at 6:00 a.m., and continued open until 7:00 p.m., of the same day, at which time the polls shall be closed, and no judge shall be behind time for more than 15 minutes after the time for opening such polls. Any judge may absent himself for a reasonable time but only during the casting of ballots, and upon leaving and returning, the judge shall sign a time sheet indicating the period of his absence. When absent for any cause, the judge shall authorize some one of the same political party with himself to act for him until his return.
