the Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts shall receive
an up-to-date list of Illinois driver's license, Illinois
Identification Card, and Illinois Disabled Person
Identification Card holders from the Secretary of State as
provided in Section 1a of the Jury Act. In compiling the jury
list, duplication of names shall be avoided to the extent
practicable.

driver's license, Illinois Identification Card, or Illinois
Disabled Person Identification Card holder, or a claimant for
unemployment insurance appearing upon this jury list is
transferred to the active jury list in the manner prescribed by
Section 8 of this Act, the following additional information
