Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Election Code. In provisions concerning petitions for nomination and submission of public questions, provides that by signing an objector's petition, the objector certifies that the petition is not being presented for any improper purpose, the objections are warranted by existing law or by a nonfrivolous argument for extending, modifying, or reversing existing law or for establishing new law, and the factual contentions have evidentiary support. Provides that the electoral board that hears the objection may impose an appropriate sanction on the objectors or their legal counsel for any false certification, including a monetary sanction payable to the county clerk, the opposing parties, or both the county clerk and the opposing parties. In provisions concerning electoral board review of petitions, provides that the nomination papers of a candidate shall be deemed invalid and a candidate's name shall not appear on the ballot if he or she is found to have personally engaged in material fraud or a pattern of fraud in connection with the nominating papers.
