(60 ILCS 1/10-10)
Election in new township.
When 2 or more townships are united
into one, or when a township is divided into 2 or more townships, a new
election shall be ordered in the new township or townships by the county board
and held at the time scheduled under the general election law for the holding
of township elections. The election shall be conducted in the manner prescribed
by the general election law. When parts of several townships are taken to make
a new township, an election need not be ordered in the townships from which
territory is taken. If, however, any officer of one of those townships
continues to reside in the new township, his or her office shall be declared
vacant and filled as in other cases of vacancy.
