Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Election Code. In provisions requiring the Governor to appoint 2 members to the State Board of Elections from a list of nominees submitted by certain State executive officers from the opposing political party as the Governor, provides that when all State executive officers are affiliated with the same political party as the Governor, the highest ranking State Senator of the political party not affiliated with the Governor shall be considered the nominating State officer to submit the list of nominees (rather than all members to be appointed to the Board that year from both designated political parties shall be appointed by the Governor without nomination).
