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.

110 ILCS 805/3-7a

    (110 ILCS 805/3-7a) (was 110 ILCS 805/3-7, subsec. (c))
    Sec. 3-7a. Trustee districts; Community College District No. 522. A board of trustees of a community college district which is contiguous or has been contiguous to an experimental community college district as authorized and defined by Article IV of this Act may, on its own motion, or shall, upon the petition of the lesser of 1/10 or 2,000 of the voters registered in the district, order submitted to the voters of the district at the next general election the proposition for the election of board members by trustee district rather than at large, and such proposition shall thereupon be certified by the secretary of the board to the proper election authority in accordance with the general election law for submission.
    If the proposition is approved by a majority of those voting on the proposition, the State Board of Elections, in 1991, shall reapportion the trustee districts to reflect the results of the last decennial census, and shall divide the community college district into 7 trustee districts, each of which shall be compact, contiguous and substantially equal in population to each other district. In 2001, and in the year following each decennial census thereafter, the board of trustees of community college District #522 shall reapportion the trustee districts to reflect the results of the census, and shall divide the community college district into 7 trustee districts, each of which shall be compact, contiguous, and substantially equal in population to each other district. The division of the community college district into trustee districts shall be completed and formally approved by a majority of the members of the board of trustees of community college District #522 in 2001 and in the year following each decennial census. At the same meeting of the board of trustees, the board shall, publicly by lot, divide the trustee districts as equally as possible into 2 groups. Beginning in 2003 and every 10 years thereafter, trustees or their successors from one group shall be elected for successive terms of 4 years and 6 years; and members or their successors from the second group shall be elected for successive terms of 6 years and 4 years. One member shall be elected from each such trustee district. Each member elected in 2001 shall be elected at the 2001 consolidated election from the trustee districts established in 1991. The term of each member elected in 2001 shall end on the date that the trustees elected in 2003 are officially determined by a canvass conducted pursuant to the Election Code.
