Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Election Code. Changes the definition of "person with a disability" to include a person having an intellectual or developmental disability. Makes conforming changes throughout the Code. Requires an election authority to provide public notice 75 days (rather than 60 days) before each general and consolidated election calculated to reach elderly voters and voters with disabilities, of the availability of registration and voting aids under the Federal Voting Accessibility for the Elderly and Handicapped Act, of the availability of assistance in marking the ballot, procedures for voting by vote by mail ballot, and procedures for voting early by personal appearance. Provides that county clerks shall mail by non-forwardable mail an official ballot with a return identification envelope and a secrecy envelope not sooner than the 20th day before the date of any election and not later than the 14th day before the date of any election to each voter with a disability. Provides the State Board of Elections, in partnership with the Department of Human Services, rulemaking authority to allow recipients of a vote by mail ballot to return their ballot by other means than mail.
