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. 21-33. Challengers and watchers. Any candidate for alderperson under the terms of this Article may appoint in writing over his signature not more than one representative for each place of voting, who shall have the right to act as challenger and watcher for such candidate at any election at which his name is being voted upon. Such challenger and watcher shall have the same powers and privileges as a challenger and watcher under the election laws of this State applicable to Chicago. No political party shall have the right to keep any challenger or watcher at any polling place at any election held under the provisions of this Article unless candidates for some office other than alderperson are to be voted for at the same time.
