Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Election Code. Requires first time voters who registered by mail to vote in person unless they first provide specified types of documents identifying their name and address. Permits a registered voter whose name has changed but who lives in the same precinct to vote after making an affidavit at the polling place as to his or her identity and registration (now, only if the name change occurred at certain times and only if another voter attests to his or her identity). Requires the election authority to treat the affidavit as a request to register under the new name.
