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.

Certification of Candidates-Consolidated
Not less than 68 days
before the date of the consolidated primary, each local election
official of each political subdivision required to nominate candidates
for the respective offices by primary shall certify to each election
authority whose duty it is to prepare the official ballot for the
consolidated primary in such political subdivision the names of all
candidates in whose behalf nomination papers have been filed in the
office of such local election official
and direct the election authority to place upon the official ballot for
the consolidated primary election the names of such candidates in the same
manner and in the same order as shown upon the certification. However,
subject to appeal, the names of candidates whose
nomination papers have been held invalid by the appropriate electoral board
provided in Section 10-9 of this Code shall not be so
certified. The certification
shall be modified as necessary to comply with the requirements of any other
statute or any ordinance adopted pursuant to Article VII of the Constitution
prescribing specific provisions for nonpartisan elections, including without
limitation Articles 3, 4 and 5 of "The Municipal Code".
The names of candidates shall be listed on the certification for the
respective offices in the order in which the candidates have filed their
nomination papers, or as determined by lot, or as otherwise specified by statute.
In every instance where applicable, the following shall also be indicated
in the certification:
(1) Where there is to be more than one candidate
elected to an office from a political subdivision or district;
(2) Where a voter has the right to vote for more than
one candidate for an office;
(3) The terms of the office to be on the ballot, when
a vacancy is to be filled for less than a full term, or when offices of a particular subdivision to be on the ballot at the same election are to be filled for different terms;
(4) The territory in which a candidate is required by
law to reside, when such residency requirement is not identical to the territory of the political subdivision from which the candidate is to be elected or nominated;
(5) Where a candidate's nominating papers or
petitions have been objected to and the objection has been sustained by the electoral board established in Section 10-10, the words "OBJECTION SUSTAINED" shall be placed under the title of the office being sought by the candidate and the name of the aggrieved candidate shall not appear; and
(6) Where a candidate's nominating papers or
petitions have been objected to and the decision of the electoral board established in Section 10-10 is either unknown or known to be in judicial review, the words "OBJECTION PENDING" shall be placed under the title of the office being sought by the candidate and next to the name of the candidate.
The local election official shall issue an amended certification
whenever it is discovered that the original certification is in error.
