Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

shall publish notice
of the election of officers of each political subdivision to be conducted
in his or its jurisdiction on such election date. The notice of election
shall be published once in one or more newspapers
published in each political subdivision, and if there is no such newspaper,

general circulation in the subdivision, and also once in a newspaper published
in the county wherein the political subdivisions or portions thereof, having
such elections are situated.
The notice shall be substantially in the form prescribed in Section
12-1, and may include notice of the location of the
precincts and polling places within or including part of the political
subdivision in which the election is to be conducted.
Not less than 10 days before each such election, the election authority
shall publish notice of the precincts and the location of the polling
places where the election will be conducted for political subdivisions
wholly or partially within its jurisdiction. The election authority

If, within the 10 days before any election, an election authority changes a polling location, the election authority shall send notice by electronic mail or phone call to the township committeeperson, ward committeeperson, or precinct committeepersons, as applicable, as soon as the location of the polling place is changed.
