Amends the Election Code. Changes the date for when lotteries for determining the order certain petitions were received from within 9 days following the last day for petition filing to within 5 days following the last day for petition filing.

Removes a requirement that the notice be sent to each organization of citizens entitled to have pollwatchers present. Provides that each simultaneous filer candidate may be served with notice concerning the lottery. Makes similar changes in provisions concerning minor political parties. Provides that any campaign, party, or other organization or individual that engages in a vote by mail operation shall also provide the voter with a postage-paid, pre-addressed return envelope addressed only to appropriate local election authority. Provides that a permanent polling place for early voting must remain open through the end of the second day before election day (rather than through the end of the day before election day).
