Description

Political parties; notification of adoption of primary election; certification of candidates. Directs the state political party chairmen, or their designees, to notify the Department of Elections of the party's adoption of a primary election for any office. The bill also directs state political party chairmen, or their designees, to certify to the Department of Elections the names of any candidate who has been nominated by the party through a nomination method other than a primary. Currently, these notification and certification responsibilities are shared by the state, district, and political subdivision party committee chairmen for their respective offices. The bill also provides that if a state party chairman, or his designee, fails to certify the name of a candidate for an office, the Department of Elections shall declare that there is no candidate nominated by the party for that office. The bill contains technical amendments that reflect the current administrative responsibilities of the Department of Elections. Read the Bill »
