Description

Elections; State Board of Elections; membership; appointment of Commissioner of Elections. Makes the State Board of Elections responsible for appointing the Commissioner of Elections and removes the Governor's ability to appoint to the Department of Elections a deputy commissioner or a confidential policy advisor. The bill also increases the State Board of Elections from five members to seven and staggers those initial terms so that three members are appointed in 2023 and every four years thereafter, two members are appointed in 2024 and every four years thereafter, and two members are appointed in 2025 and every four years thereafter.
