Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Election Code. Requires the State Board of Elections, beginning no later than September 1, 2017, to utilize data provided as part of its membership in the Electronic Registration Information Center in order to cross-reference the statewide voter registration database against databases of relevant personal information kept by designated government agencies, including, but not limited to, driver's license information, at least 6 times each calendar year, and requires the Board to share findings with election authorities. Provides that if a voter has a registered change of address under certain provisions but claims to live at the prior address and the election authority is unable to immediately confirm registration at the prior address, the voter shall be permitted to register and vote a regular ballot, provided that he or she meets the documentary requirements for same-day registration. Provides that if the election authority is unable to confirm the registration and the voter does not meet the requirements for same-day registration, the voter shall be issued a provisional ballot. Provides that no voter shall be disqualified for voting due to an error relating to an update of registration. Effective immediately.
