Polling places; location requirements; waiver in certain circumstances. Provides that in the event that there is no suitable building that could be used for a polling place within a precinct or within one mile of the precinct boundary, the general registrar or the governing body of the locality may request from the Department of Elections a waiver to establish a polling place that does not meet the location requirements. The bill provides that Department shall grant such a waiver and may impose any conditions on the waiver that it deems necessary or appropriate to ensure accessibility and security of the polling place.
