Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Election Code. With respect to political parties that select their State central committee using the "Alternative A" method, provides for election of committeemen by congressional district. Removes the option of election of State central committeemen by ward, township, and precinct committeemen. Requires each State central committee, within 30 days after the bill's effective date, to certify to the State Board of Elections its choice of alternative method of member selection. Makes other changes.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Election Code. Requires that a State central committee of a political party under Alternative A must be composed of 2 members from each congressional district (one male and one female) elected by the primary voters (now, one member from each district elected by the primary voters or by ward, township, and precinct committeemen). Applies to State central committees elected at or after the 2010 general primary. Effective immediately.
