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.

(from Ch. 102, par. 1)
No member of a county board, during the term of
office for which
he or she is elected, may be appointed to, accept, or hold any office other
than (i) chairman of the county board or member of the regional planning
commission by appointment or election of the board of which he or she is a
member, (ii) alderperson of a city or member of the board of trustees of a
village or incorporated town if the city, village, or incorporated town has
fewer than 1,000 inhabitants and is located in a county having fewer than
50,000 inhabitants, or (iii) trustee of a forest preserve district created under Section 18.5 of the Conservation District Act, unless he or she first resigns from the office
of county board
member or unless the holding of another office is authorized by law.
Any such prohibited appointment or election is void. This Section shall not
preclude a member of the county board from being appointed or selected to serve as (i) a member of a County
Board as provided in Section 7 of the County Cooperative Extension Law, (ii)
a member of an Emergency Telephone System Board as provided in Section
15.4 of the Emergency Telephone System Act, (iii) a member of the
board of review as provided in Section 6-30 of the Property Tax Code, or (iv) a public administrator or public guardian as provided in Section 13-1 of the Probate Act of 1975.
Nothing in this Act shall be construed to prohibit an elected county official
from holding elected office in another unit of local government so long as
there is no contractual relationship between the county and the other unit of
local government. This amendatory Act of 1995 is declarative of existing law
and is not a new enactment.
