(from Ch. 46, par. 4-14.1)
Cancelation of deceased voter's registration. Upon establishment of an electronic reporting system for death registrations as provided in the Vital Records Act, the county clerk of the county where a decedent last resided, as indicated on the decedent's death certificate, may issue certifications of death records from that system and may use that system to cancel the registration of any person who has died during the preceding month. Regardless of whether or not such a system has been established, it is the duty of the county clerk to examine, monthly, the
records deposited in his or her office pursuant to the Vital Records Act that
relate to deaths in the county, and to cancel the registration of any
person who has died during the preceding month.
