10 ILCS 5/16-3 from Ch. 46, par. 16-3
Amends the Election Code. Requires election authorities to print
photographs of presidential candidates on general election ballots in
presidential election years. Requires the State Board of Elections by
rule to provide for the uniformity and certification of such
photographs. Makes an election authority's failure to print a
certified photo or use of an uncertified photo a Class C misdemeanor.
FISCAL NOTE (State Board of Elections)
HB496 would have minimal fiscal impact on the operations of
the State Board of Elections. Any cost to implement the pro-
visions of HB496, as introduced, can be absorbed within the
regular operating budget.
STATE MANDATES NOTE (Dept. of Commerce and Community Affairs)
In the opinion of DCCA, HB 496 creates a local government
organization and structure mandate for which reimbursement
by the State is not required under the State Mandates Act.
HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Requires that the names of the presidential and vice presidential
candidates appear on the ballot and that the candidate's punch number
appear below his or her name. Removes the alternative that the
candidate's photo appear with his or her party designation if the
