Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Election Code. Provides that the State Board of Elections and the Office of the Secretary of State shall establish an automatic voter registration program pursuant to an interagency contract and jointly-adopted rules. Provides that an application for a driver's license, other than a temporary visitor's driver's license or a State identification card, shall also serve as an application to register to vote; allow an update to registration; and perform other specified functions. Requires specified agencies to provide certain information regarding registration. Establishes designated automatic voter registration agencies; and requires the establishment of dual-purpose applications to register to vote. Sets forth provisions and requirements for the State Board of Elections regarding the program. Amends the Freedom of Information Act to exempt certain information. Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code to make conforming changes. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Corrects a technical error.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with provisions of bill as amended by Senate Amendment No. 1 with the following changes: In provisions concerning notice by electronic mail, excludes certain notices. Provides that if an application for certain licenses from the Office of the Secretary of State meet the requirements of the federal REAL ID Act of 2005, then the applications shall serve as dual-purpose applications. Makes conforming changes. Changes various references to allowing a change of address in the voter rolls to also include a change of name. Creates provisions for applications that do not meet the requirements of the federal REAL ID Act of 2005, including requiring an applicant to attest, by a separate signature under penalty of perjury, to meeting the qualifications to vote. Moves provisions concerning notices from the Office of the Secretary of State and designated agencies. Requires the Office of the Secretary of State and designated agencies to review its records of the identification documents the applicant provided (rather than its records regarding the applicant, including identification documents that may have been provided). Sets forth provisions for incomplete applications. Allows the State Board of Elections to establish criteria for reliable personal information indicating citizenship status if the federal REAL ID Act of 2005 is repealed, abrogated, superseded, or otherwise no longer in effect. Provides that the State Board of Elections may cross-reference voter registration information from any designated automatic voter registration agency with information contained in the database of the Secretary of State. Removes certain requirements for notices. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 3
Changes certain references. Provides that a separate signature is only required on a dual-purpose application if the applicant chooses to register to vote or to change his or her registered residence address or name. Provides that the Office of the Secretary of State and the designated agencies shall confirm that nothing in the provided documents (rather than that they are not in possession of any information that) indicates that the applicant does not satisfy the qualifications to register to vote in Illinois. Provides that if the identification documents provided to the Office or to the agencies (rather than if the Office's or agency's records regarding the applicant) indicate that he or she does not satisfy the qualifications to register to vote, the application shall be marked as incomplete. Includes completed applications with a separate signature attesting that the applicant meets the qualifications to register in a list of what constitutes a signed application to register to vote. Includes the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation and the Department of Natural Resources in the definition of "designated automatic voter registration agency".

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Adds reference to:
10 ILCS 5/1A-16.7 new

Replaces everything after the enacting clause with provisions of the engrossed bill with the following changes: Changes various references of "an application" to "an application, an application for renewal, a change of address form, or a recertification form". Removes a requirement for the Office of the Secretary of State and designated automatic voter registration agencies to transmit incomplete records to the State Board of Elections. Provides that for the purposes of dual-purpose registrations in the Office of the Secretary of State, a dual-purpose application does not include an application under certain provisions of the Illinois Vehicle Code. Requires, rather than permits, designated automatic voter registration agencies to agree to participate in automatic voter registration. Allows the State Board of Elections and designated automatic voter registration agency to consider current technological capabilities and to amend contracts as necessary to take those capabilities into account. Removes the Department of Healthcare and Family Services and the Department on Aging from the definition of "designated automatic voter registration agency" and includes the divisions of Family and Community Services and Rehabilitation Services of the Department of Human Services (rather than the entirety of the Department of Human Services) in the definition. Provides that provisions concerning designated automatic voter registration agencies shall be implemented no later than July 1, 2019 (rather than July 1, 2018). Restores language concerning government agency voter registration, but moves existing new language. Makes changes to information considered confidential. Provides that nothing in the Code shall require designated voter registration agencies to transmit information that is confidential client information under State or federal law without the consent of the applicant. Allows certain reports to be less detailed in 2018 and 2019 depending on available information. Sets forth prioritization of information in the case of conflict between various information sources. Effective immediately.
