Disqualification of voters; felons; procedure. Codifies the State Board of Elections current practice to check the monthly list of felony convictions received from the Central Criminal Records Exchange (CCRE) against the registered voters maintained on the voter registration system and notify the appropriate general registrar of any voter who is disqualified to vote due to a felony conviction. The bill also requires that the CCRE provide annually a list of all persons convicted of a felony to the State Board and that the annual list shall be checked against the registered voters maintained on the voter registration system. The bill also provides that the name of any person who applies to register to vote and other descriptive information shall be provided to CCRE in order for the CCRE to search its records to determine if such person has been convicted of a felony.
