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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

Plan for changes in townships.
(a) The county board of each county may, subject to a referendum in the
townships affected as provided in this Section, adopt a plan for altering the
boundaries of townships, changing township lines, dividing, enlarging, or
consolidating townships, or creating new townships, so that each township shall
possess an equalized assessed valuation of not less than $10,000,000 as of the
1982 assessment year.
(b) No alteration or change in boundaries shall be effective unless
approved by a referendum in each township affected. The election authority
shall submit to the voters of each township affected, at a regular
election to be held not less than 60 days after the plan is adopted,
the question of approving the alteration or change. The alterations or changes,
if approved by the voters, shall take effect on the date of the next township
election and shall be applicable to that election. If there is doubt as to the
township clerk with whom nomination papers for that election should be filed,
the county board shall designate the clerk. In the alteration of boundaries, a
county board may not disturb urban or coterminous townships in existence on
October 1, 1978.
