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.

10 ILCS 5/6-22

    (10 ILCS 5/6-22) (from Ch. 46, par. 6-22)
    Sec. 6-22. Two of such commissioners at least shall always be selected from the 2 leading political parties of the state, one from each of such parties, and all shall be legal voters residing in such city, village or incorporated town, and be persons of well known political convictions and of approved integrity and capacity. No commissioner can hold any other political office. Whenever it shall come to the knowledge of the court that one of the leading political parties of the state is not represented upon such commission by a person of the same political faith, the court shall at once remove one of such commissioners and fill the vacancy with a member of the leading political party not so represented.
