Election Statutes

Illinois Statutes
The Illinois Election Code (10 ILCS 5/1-1 et seq.) is the general election law of the State.

Federal Election Legislation
Federal legislation has dramatically changed the election process in recent years. Motor Voter, or the National Voter Registration Act, mandated mail registration and expanded registration at driver's license facilities.

The Help America Vote Act (HAVA) set down stringent requirements for voting systems and created the Election Assistance Commission (EAC), a bipartisan commission that operates the federal government's voting system certification program and administers a national clearinghouse for election information.
