Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Election Code. Changes specified references to the required postmark date for vote by mail ballots to "no later than election day" to conform to other changes from Public Act 98-1171. Provides that in the event that the return address of an application for ballot by a physically incapacitated elector is that of a facility licensed or certified under specified Acts and the applicant is a registered voter in the precinct in which such facility is located, the ballots shall be prepared and transmitted to a responsible judge of election no later than 9 a.m. on the Friday, Saturday, Sunday, or Monday (previously, only Saturday, Sunday, or Monday) immediately preceding the election as designated by the election authority. Provides that the period for early voting by personal appearance begins the 15th (rather than 40th) day preceding an election. Provides that the envelope in which a vote by mail ballot is returned to the election authority may be delivered by any person authorized by the voter. Provides that any person who, having voted once, knowingly during any election (previously, on the same election day) where the ballot or machine lists any of the same candidates and issues listed on the ballot or machine previously used for voting by that person (a) files an application to vote in the same or another polling place or (b) accepts a ballot or enters a voting machine (except to legally give assistance under the Code), commits a Class 3 felony. Provides that certificates of nomination and nomination papers for the nomination of candidates for school district offices to be filled at consolidated elections shall be filed with the county clerk or county board of election commissioners of the county (rather than with the "election authority") in which the principal office of the school district is located not more than 113 nor less than 106 days before the consolidated election. Effective immediately.
