Requires election authorities to transmit, by fax, e-mail, or other electronic means, a certificate of the results of the election to the State Board of Elections. Amends the Revised Cities and Villages Act of 1941. Provides that recounts for the office of alderman in the City of Chicago must be filed and conducted in accordance with the Election Code (instead of within 5 days after the election).
