Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.
(10 ILCS 5/6-57)
(from Ch. 46, par. 6-57)
To each person who registers at the office of the board of
election commissioners or at any place designated by such board under
Section 6-51 of this Article, after the first registration under this
Article, the board shall send by mail, and electronic mail if the registrant has provided the board of election committees with an e-mail address, a notice setting forth the elector's
name and address as it appears on the registration record card, and shall
request him in case of any error to present the notice on or before the
tenth day next ensuing at the office of the Board of Election Commissioners
in order to secure the correction of the error. Such notice shall contain
on the outside a request for the postmaster to return it within five days
if it cannot be delivered to the addressee at the address given thereon.
Upon the return by the post office of any such notice which it has been
unable to deliver at the given address because the addressee cannot be
found there, a notice shall be at once sent through the United States mail
to such person at the address appearing upon his registration record card
requiring him to appear before the Board of Election Commissioners at a
time and place specified in the notice and show cause why his name should
not be cancelled from the register. Thereafter, proceedings shall be, as
nearly as may be, in conformity with those established by Section 6-52 of
this Article with respect to applications to complete registration. Such
notice may be sent at any time within thirty days after the registration of
any person, but such notice shall be sent within five days after the last
day of registration before any election, to all persons who have registered
since the last preceding election, and to whom no such notice has
theretofore been sent; and where the addressee cannot be found, notice
requiring such person to appear before the board of election commissioners
shall specify dates for hearing before the election not later than those
prescribed by Section 6-45 of this Article.
