Short description: 
ELEC CD-CHANGE PRIMRY-SEPT                                                 

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Election  Code  and  the  School  Code.   Changes  the      
   general primary election from the third Tuesday in March to the second      
   Tuesday  in  September.   Maintains  the  third  Tuesday  in  March of      
   presidential election years for the  presidential  preference  primary      
   and selection of delegates to the national nominating conventions.          
          FISCAL NOTE (State Board of Elections)                               
          HB 1806 would have minimal fiscal impact on the operations of        
          the Board. However, the grant reimbursement to counties for          
          judges of election who serve at the presidential primary elec-       
          tion held in presidential election years would cost the State        
          approximately $870,000 (3 election judges per precinct at $25        
          per judge for 11,600 precincts in the State).
