        Amends the Election Code.  Changes the petition filing period for      
   even-numbered years to 106-99 days (now 99-92 days) before the general

   petitions for ward committeemen shall be heard not less than  81  days      
   (now  74  days)  prior  to  the  date of the primary. Permits judicial      
   retention candidates to appear on the same ballot label pages as other      
   candidates as long as the retention portion of  the  pages  is  green,      
   separate,  and  distinct  from  the  remainder  of  the page.  Permits      
   publication of the specimen ballot, notice of the election, and notice      
   of the referenda as a single publication.  Effective immediately.

   primary.  Makes a technical correction.
