Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Election Code. Requires a pilot project for the conduct of grace period registration and early voting on college campuses at the 2010 general election. Changes the deadlines for filing nomination, public question, and objector petitions (makes the first day for filing 14 days earlier than currently and the last day for filing 7 days earlier than currently, with certain exceptions) and for an election authority's various candidate and ballot certification duties (makes the deadline 7 days earlier than currently). Corrects a reference to the deadline for filling a vacancy in nomination for a General Assembly candidate in certain circumstances. With respect to applications for absentee ballots: removes the requirement that the application must be furnished by the election authority; permits any person to reproduce, distribute, or return an application; and requires the election authority to promptly process any returned application. Amends the Revised Cities and Villages Act of 1941. Makes the deadline for withdrawal by an aldermanic candidate the date of certification of the election ballot (now, the twentieth day before the election). Amends the Liquor Control Act of 1934. Requires that local referenda petitions be filed at least 104 (now, 90) days before the election and that objections to those petitions be filed up to 72 (now, 30) days before the election. Effective immediately.
