ELEC CD-VOTERS PAMPHLET                                                    

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Election Code.   Provides  that  the  State  Board  of      
   Elections  shall  prepare  and  print  a  voters'  pamphlet containing      
   candidate portraits and statements and explanatory statements  of  and      
   arguments   supporting   and  opposing  public  questions.   Sets  the      
   requirements  for  material  that  may  be  included  in  the  voters'      
   pamphlet.  Provides for the review of material to be included  in  the      
   pamphlet.   Provides  that the Board may charge fees for the inclusion      
   of material in the pamphlet.  Provides  that  a  county  may  prepare,      
   print,  and  distribute  a  county  voters'  pamphlet  for any regular      
   election.  Contains other provisions.                                       
          FISCAL NOTE (State Board of Elections)                               
          Based on the cost to the Secretary of State for the printing         
          and distribution of the 1998 General Election Constitutional         
          Amendment blue pamphlet ($1,500,000 for 12 page pamphlet), it        
          is estimated that the Board would require $2-$3 million per          
          election to prepare, edit, index and distribute a State Voter's      
          Pamphlet to all post office mailing addresses in Illinois. The       
          requirements to produce a county voters' pamphlet would have         
          minimal fiscal impact on the operations of the Board.
