   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      
   candidate's name does not appear on the ballot.
