Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
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 Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

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.

410 ILCS 535/8

    (410 ILCS 535/8) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 73-8)
    Sec. 8. Each local registrar shall:
    (1) Appoint one or more deputies to act for him in his absence or to assist him. Such deputies shall be subject to all rules and regulations governing local registrars.
    (2) Appoint one or more subregistrars when necessary for the convenience of the people. To become effective, such appointments must be approved by the State Registrar of Vital Records. A subregistrar shall exercise such authority as is given him by the local registrar and is subject to the supervision and control of the State Registrar of Vital Records, and shall be liable to the same penalties as local registrars, as provided in Section 27 of this Act.
    (3) Administer and enforce the provisions of this Act and the instructions, rules, and regulations issued hereunder.
    (4) Require that certificates be completed and filed in accordance with the provisions of this Act and the rules and regulations issued hereunder.
    (5) Prepare and transmit monthly an accurate copy of each record of live birth, death, and fetal death to the county clerk of his county. He shall also, in the case of a death of a person who was a resident of another county, prepare an additional copy of the death record and transmit it to the county clerk of the county in which such person was a resident. In no case shall the county clerk's copy of a live birth record include the section of the certificate which contains information for health and statistical program use only.
    (6) (Blank).
    (7) Prepare, file, and retain for a period of at least 10 years in his own office an accurate copy of each record of live birth, death, and fetal death accepted for registration. Only in those instances in which the local registrar is also a full time city, village, incorporated town, public health district, county, or multi-county health officer recognized by the Department may the health and statistical data section of the live birth record be made a part of this copy.
    (8) Transmit monthly the certificates, reports, or other returns filed with him to the State Registrar of Vital Records, or more frequently when directed to do so by the State Registrar of Vital Records.
    (8.5) Transmit monthly to the State central register of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services a copy of all death certificates of persons under 18 years of age who have died within the month.
    (9) Maintain such records, make such reports, and perform such other duties as may be required by the State Registrar of Vital Records.
