b)         No voter registration may be canceled without following the procedures and providing the notice of suspension or cancellation required by Section 8(a) through (d) of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993.  The Voter Registration Application or the Voter Registration Card of an inactive voter who has not voted in two consecutive general federal elections shall be canceled at the completion of procedures set forth in Section 8(d) of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, provided that while such procedures are pending, the voter has taken no action specified in the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 to restore his or her name to active voter status.

d)         A voter's registration shall be canceled upon the election authority's receipt of:

 

1)         a notice from the State Board of Elections that the voter has been incarcerated in a United States correctional facility by reason of conviction;

 

2)         a certified notice from the a state department of corrections or a sheriff of a county in the United States that the voter has been incarcerated in a state or county correctional facility, as the case may be, if:

 

A)        the certified notice states on its face that the incarceration is a result of a criminal conviction and the crime of which the voter has been convicted, or

 

B)        the certified notice is accompanied by a certified judgment of conviction or equivalent document issued by the court in which the conviction was obtained;

 

3)         a certified copy of a judgment of conviction from a court of record that the voter has been convicted of a crime in which it was found that the voter lacked the requisite qualifications to be a voter in Illinois either at the time of conviction or at the time application was made to become a voter, whether or not the voter was incarcerated as a result of such conviction;

 

4)         a certified copy of a final judgment order of a court of record or a certified copy of the final determination of an administrative tribunal having jurisdiction in which it was found that the voter lacked the requisite qualifications to be a voter in Illinois either at the time of entry of the judgment or determination, or at the time application was made to become a voter; or

 

5)         a certified copy of the voter's death certificate or equivalent document issued by a department of vital records, wherever situated.

 

Section 216.60  Forms

 

a)         This Section implements Sections 5, 6, 7 and 8 of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (42 U.S.C. Sections 1973gg-3, gg-4, gg-5 and gg-6) and the order of the Circuit Court of Cook County entered May 1, 1996 in Or, et al., v. Edgar, et al. 95 CO 246 and 95 CO 248 (Consolidated).

 

b)         Township supervisors and county commissioners in counties not under township organization shall, and the Illinois Secretary of State and designated agencies of the State of Illinois may, use the forms prescribed in Exhibits A, B, and C of this Part in taking and transmitting the Voter Registration Applications of applicants who choose to submit Voter Registration Applications, or in recording the decision of the applicants who decline to submit Voter Registration Applications if such agencies do not otherwise provide forms of their own design meeting the requirements of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993.

 

c)         Election authorities shall use the forms prescribed in Exhibits D, E, F, G, and H in providing notice of decisions taken with respect to Voter Registration Applications and Voter Registration Cards.

 

d)         The State Board of Elections shall supply to each election authority a quantity of the National Mail Voter Registration Booklets  designed by the United States Federal Election Commission on an as-needed basis. Each election authority shall make a copy of the National Mail Voter Registration Booklet available to any person over 18 years of age in its jurisdiction who seeks to register to vote in another state, or refer a request from such person for a National Mail Voter Registration Booklet to the Illinois State Board of Elections in accord with subsection (h) of this Section.

 

e)         Each election authority shall make a copy of the Illinois Voter Registration Application  available to any person over 18 years of age in its jurisdiction who seeks to register to vote in Illinois.  Each Voter Registration Application supplied to an individual shall be accompanied by instructions for completing the forms and returning it to the appropriate address. Such instructions may be oral where the form is supplied by a designated agency to an applicant.

 

f)         Election authorities, the Secretary of State, and designated agencies shall obtain the Illinois Voter Registration Application for their own purposes and, in the case of election authorities, in sufficient quantities for distribution to the public.  Each Voter Registration Application so produced shall conform to the measurements, paper weight, color and layout,  and shall reproduce verbatim the text set forth in Exhibit A of this Part.

 

g)         Voter Registration Applications made available to the general public to be returned by mail to the election authority shall be placed in holders or dispensers bearing the uniform logo designed for the purpose by the State Board of Elections.  Control numbers assigned by the election authority may be added to Voter Registration Applications distributed to the general public, but no such control number shall be assigned to any Voter Registration Application supplied by the election authority to a designated registration agency, a township supervisor, or a county commissioner.  Voter Registration Applications offered to the general public to be returned by mail must bear the mailing address of the election authority having jurisdiction over the place where the form dispenser is located.  Whenever an election authority receives  a Voter Registration Application for an applicant who does not reside in the election authority's jurisdiction, the election authority shall forward, within three days after its receipt, the Voter Registration Application  to the election authority for the place where the applicant resides.  The election authority shall include with the forwarding a transmittal notice of the kind identified in Appendix C of this Part.  The election authority receiving such a transmitted application shall treat the application as if it had been originally filed with the receiving election authority.  The postmark on  the application or date of the application's receipt by the transmitting election authority shall determine the voter's eligibility to vote in the next ensuing election.

 

h)         Election authorities shall limit the number of the National Mail Voter Registration Booklets supplied to an organization conducting a voter registration drive to 50.  Requests for the National Mail Voter Registration Booklet in quantities exceeding 50 shall be referred to the State Board of Elections, which shall, prior to filling the request, require the organization making such a request to submit in writing a copy of its plan to distribute the booklets, including the states in which the organization intends to distribute the booklet and the quantities to be distributed in each state.  The State Board of Elections shall deny the request if such a written plan is not submitted, and shall substitute the Voter Registration Application for any quantities of the National Mail Voter Registration Booklet intended for distribution in Illinois.  The State Board of Elections shall charge the requesting party the actual cost of reproducing the National Mail Voter Registration Booklet for any quantities requested over 200.

 

Section 216.70  Processing Voter Registration Applications

 

a)         The State Board of Elections shall, and all persons accepting from applicants Voter Registration Applications are encouraged to, transmit executed applications to the election authority:

 

1)         not more than ten days after execution, if executed five days or more prior to the date upon which voter registration closes, or

 

2)         not more than five days after execution, if executed less than five days prior to the date upon which registration closes but prior to the close of registration.

 

b)         Applications arriving prior to the close of registration at an election authority unaccompanied by a Voter Registration Application Transmittal shall, for the purpose of first time voting only, be deemed to be applications received by mail, and all applicants whose applications are so transmitted shall be advised that they will be required to vote in person at the first election in which they vote.

 

c)         A Voter Registration Application may be executed while voter registration is closed, but in such case such application shall not entitle the applicant to vote at any election held before registration reopens.  Applications bearing no postmark arriving by mail not later than five days after the close of registration shall be deemed to have been filed prior to the close of registration.  Applications arriving by mail after the close of registration, but bearing a postmark earlier than the day upon which registration closed shall be deemed to have been filed prior to the close of registration no matter when actually received. Applications which arrive by mail bearing a postmark later than the day upon which registration closed shall not be deemed to have been filed prior to the close of registration no matter when actually received.

 

d)         The State Board of Elections shall assign to each township supervisor, county commissioner in counties not under township organization, and designated agency a block of document control numbers, the identity of which block shall be confidential, which such entities may use on each Voter Registration Application Transmittal accompanying batches of applications sent to election authorities.

 

e)         Every Voter Registration Application Transmittal shall note on its face how many applications are being transmitted, a document control number from the block assigned to the entity submitting the Voter Registration Application Transmittal, identified in subsection (d) of this Section, and the date of transmittal.

 

f)         Every application received by an election authority shall be examined to determine if the information contained on the application is sufficient on its face to cause the applicant to be listed among the voters of the jurisdiction, or if the application duplicates a record or Voter Registration Card already on file with the election authority.

 

1)         If the application duplicates a record already on file with the election authority, the applicant shall be sent a forwardable Disposition of Registration notice advising the voter that he or she is already registered to vote.

 

2)         If the information is insufficient, the election authority shall send the applicant a forwardable Disposition of Registration notice informing the applicant:

 

A)        that his or her application has been rejected, identifying the reason for rejection, and

 

B)        that he or she will not be entitled to vote until a new and sufficient application has been received by the election authority.

a)         Each election authority shall generate and keep the following information from the registration activities it conducts:

6)         the total number of Voter Registration Applications and Voter Registration Cards received from any other source not specifically enumerated in subsections (a)(2) through (5) of this Section, by source, between the two immediately past federal elections, and the total number of these applications and registration cards which are duplicates of already existing registrations;

 

7)         the total number of Voter Registration Applications canceled, for whatever reason, between the two immediately past federal elections;

 

8)         the number of name and address confirmation forms mailed out between the two immediately past federal elections, and the number of responses thereto; and

 

9)         the postal costs incurred between the two immediately past federal elections for all mailings required to satisfy requirements of 42 U.S.C. 1973gg et seq.

 

b)         "By mail", for purposes of this Section, excludes those applications transmitted by the Secretary of State, designated agencies, township supervisors and county commissioners, and armed forces personnel registering voters, even though applications arrive by means of the United States Postal Service.

 

c)         The data required to be kept by this Section may be kept in electronic or paper copy format.

 

Section 216.90  Voting

 

a)         Voters shall vote at the polling place for the precinct where they reside, except that:

 

1)         a voter who moves without notice to the election authority to a different residence still within the same election jurisdiction (territory under the control, for voting and registration purposes, of an election authority) as the place from which he or she moved shall vote for the first time he or she offers to vote after changing residence in the polling place for the residence from which the voter most recently registered, and thereafter in the polling place for the voter's present residence;

 

2)         such voters are entitled by this Part to vote for federal offices only (However, those persons may be entitled by the Election Code to vote for other offices; see, for example, 10 ILCS 5/6-27 and 6-53.); and

 

3)         subject to the requirements of subsection (d) (c) of this Section, any voter otherwise qualified to vote an absentee ballot may vote  by absentee ballot.

 

b)         In jurisdictions employing an electronic system which utilizes ballot cards:

2)         the number of federal office only ballot cards supplied to any polling place shall not exceed 10% of the number of registered voters assigned to the polling place.

 

c)         The election authority shall transfer the record or registration card, as the case may be, of each voter described in subsection (a)(1) of this Section to the binder for the precinct encompassing the voter's new place of residence immediately after the first election at which the voter offers to vote after changing residence, making such notations on the record as are necessary to bring the information contained on it current, and thereafter the voter shall vote in the precinct polling place for the new residence.

 

d)         An applicant who has submitted a Voter Registration Application by mail must vote in person at the first election at which he or she votes after his or her application is acknowledged unless the voter is entitled to cast an absentee ballot under the provisions of Article 20 of the Illinois Election Code or is eligible to vote an absentee ballot by any pertinent federal statute or law. Voting in person includes in-person absentee voting, nursing home voting and hospitalized voters voting under the provision of Section 19-13 of the Election Code [10 ILCS 5/19-13].

 

e)         An absentee voter voting under the provisions of subsections (a) (1) through (3) of this Section shall also complete an Address Correction for Fail Safe Voters.  A Fail Safe Voter is a voter who votes under the provisions of subsection (a)(1) of this Section.
