Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Election Code. Provides that when a qualified elector's precinct polling place is a school and the elector will be unable to enter the school to vote because the elector is a child sex offender, the elector may vote early or by absentee ballot. Requires that an election authority that designates permanent or temporary early voting polling places must designate at least one that a child sex offender may lawfully enter. Requires that an election authority provide election-day voting at its principal office for child sex offenders who cannot lawfully enter their assigned precinct polling place. Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. In the provision prohibiting a child sex offender from entering a school, removes language providing that a child sex offender has the right to be present in a school building to vote. Provides that it is a Class 4 felony for a child sex offender to knowingly be present within 100 feet of a site posted as a pick-up or discharge stop for a conveyance owned, leased, or contracted by a school to transport students to or from school or a school related activity when one or more persons under the age of 18 are present at the site. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
In the Election Code, removes the requirement that each election authority provide in-person voting on election day at its principal office for child sex offenders whose polling place is a school and who have not voted by early or absentee ballot.
