Bill Would Require Posting of Notice of Elected Official Vacancies

Senate Bill 2553 will be of interest to units of local government in Illinois with elected officials. The bill is called the Local Official Vacancy Posting Act, and has been approved by the Illinois Senate and is currently in the Illinois Houe. If approved by the House and signed by the Governor, it would require a unit of local government to post every elected official vacancy on its website, if the website is maintained by full-time staff of the government. That notice would have to remain on the website until the vacancy is filled. The bill also requires local governments to forward notice of the vacancy to the county clerk in the county in which the unit is located for posting on the county clerk's website. The bill includes a home-rule preemption.
