State Election Informational Notice:

In June, Governor Pritzker signed Public Act 101-0642 into law, creating a number of requirements aimed at helping the state prepare for holding the 2020 General Election in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Anticipating a shortage of election judges, Public Act 101-0642 makes several changes to state law aimed at encouraging students to serve in that role. The law provides that election judges may be as young as 16 if they are otherwise qualified. Election judges must also declare their political party affiliation.
