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.

65 ILCS 20/21-26

    (65 ILCS 20/21-26) (from Ch. 24, par. 21-26)
    Sec. 21-26. Candidates receiving majority elected - supplementary elections. The candidate receiving a majority of the votes cast for alderperson in each ward at any general or special election shall be declared elected. In the event that no candidate receives a majority of such votes in any ward or wards a supplementary election shall be held at the time prescribed in Section 21-25. At such supplementary election the names of the candidates in each of such wards receiving the highest and second highest number of votes at the preceding general or special election and no others shall be placed on the official ballot: Provided, however, that if there be any candidate who, under the provisions of this Section would have been entitled to a place on the ballot at the supplementary election except for the fact that some other candidate received an equal number of votes, then all such candidates receiving such equal number of votes shall have their names printed on the ballot as candidates at such succeeding supplementary election. The candidate receiving the highest number of votes at such supplementary election shall be declared elected. Such supplementary election shall be deemed a special election under the election and ballot laws in force in the city of Chicago and shall be governed thereby except in so far as such laws are inconsistent with the provisions of this article.
