Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Election Code. Allows the election authority in Champaign County to establish a pilot program that creates one or more vote centers for an election. Provides that if a vote center is used in a political subdivision, precinct polling places shall not also be used in the election in that political subdivision, unless each precinct polling place has a secure electronic connection to provide voting information to and receive voting information from the online voter registration system maintained by the election authority. Requires each vote center used to have a secure electronic connection to the online voter registration system maintained by the election authority permitting all voting information processed by any computer at a vote center to be immediately accessible to all other computers at all vote centers in the county and the ability for each voter to securely cast their ballot in a tabulation machine designed and programmed to accept all ballot styles for the current election. Provides for the number, location, and manner of operation and location of vote centers. Provides that vote centers shall receive and return all election supplies and ballots as a single entity, not by individual precinct requirements. Includes provisions concerning minimum requirements for operation of vote centers, early voting, and election judge requirements. Defines "vote center" to mean a polling place at which any registered elector or eligible elector in the political subdivision holding the election may vote, regardless of the precinct in which the elector resides. Repeals the provisions on January 1, 2025.
