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.

The mayor or president of any city or village which elects alderpersons by wards or trustees by districts shall not vote on any ordinance, resolution or motion except: (1) where the vote of the alderpersons or trustees has resulted in a tie; (or) (2) where one-half of the alderpersons or trustees then holding office have voted in favor of an ordinance, resolution or motion even though there is no tie vote; or (3) where a vote greater than a majority of the corporate authorities is required by this Code to adopt an ordinance, resolution or motion. In each instance specified, the mayor or president shall vote. The following mayors and presidents may vote on all questions coming before the council or board: (1) mayors and presidents of cities and villages operating under this Article and Article 4, and (2) mayors and presidents of cities and villages which do not elect alderpersons by wards and trustees by districts.
