Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Election Code. Provides that if judges in charge of precinct registration files find that the signature on the certificate of the registered voter and the signature on the registration card do not match for the applicant to vote, the applicant shall provide the judges with a valid State issued drivers license, State issued identification card, or passport. Removes language providing that judges shall ask an applicant the questions for identification that appear on the registration card if they are unsatisfied that the applicant is the identical person who is registered under the same name; and if the applicant does not prove to the satisfaction of a majority of the judges that he is the identical person registered under the name in question, then the vote of the applicant shall be challenged by a judge and the same procedure followed as provided by law for challenged voters. Provides that the judges shall find that the signature on the certificate and the signature on the registration card do not match in situations that include, but are not limited to, if one signature is in cursive writing and the other is in printed writing.
