Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Voters' Guide Article of the Election Code. Provides that the information the State Board of Elections is required to disseminate on a website before the general election shall be referred to as the Voters' Guide (rather than the Internet Guide). Requires the Voters' Guide to be made available no later than 60 days (rather than 45 days) before a general election. Adds that the Voters' Guide shall include information on how to register to vote, vote early, vote by mail, and use other procedures available to electors. Requires printed copies of the Voters' Guide to be made available to the public at the State Board of Elections' offices (rather than providing the State Board of Elections discretion to publish the Internet Guide). Requires the Voters' Guide to be made available in Spanish. Makes conforming changes throughout the Article.
