lllinois lawmakers passed an Omnibus Election bill this spring which was signed into law by Governor Pritzker on June 17. Public Act 102-0015 makes major changes to the state's election code to strengthen cybersecurity measures, cope with delays to 2020 U.S. Census data, and further expand access to the ballot box for Illinoisans across the state.
Illinois Extension's Local Government Education program hosted this recent one-hour webinar, which featured a summary of key portions of the new law (see the slides). It also featured four county clerks, who shared their takes on what the changes will mean administratively and for voters.
