Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 3-2007. Office quarters and hours; violation. The county clerk shall keep the clerk's office at the court house of the county, or at such other place as may be provided for the clerk by the authorities of such county seat and shall keep the office open and attend to the duties thereof:
        (a) In counties of 500,000 or more population from 9

    Provided, that the days on which such office shall be open and the hours of opening and closing of the office of the county clerk may be changed and otherwise fixed and determined by the county board of any county. Any such action taken by the county board shall be by an appropriate resolution passed at a regular meeting.

    Any county clerk who fails to keep the clerk's office open for the purpose of receiving election returns as required by this Section commits a business offense, and shall be fined not less than $500 nor more than $5,000.
