In making a determination as to whether to conduct the election by mail, the election commissioner or county clerk shall consider whether all of the following conditions are met:

(1) All registered voters of the political subdivision or a district or ward of the political subdivision are eligible to vote on all candidates and issues submitted to the voters;

(2) Only registered voters of the political subdivision or the district or ward of the political subdivision are eligible to vote on all candidates and issues submitted to the voters;

(3) A review has been conducted of the costs and the expected voter turnout which may result from holding the election by mail;

(4) The election commissioner or county clerk has determined a date for the election which is not the same date as another election in which the registered voters of the political subdivision are eligible to vote; and

(5) The Secretary of State has approved a written plan for the conduct of the election, including a written timetable for the conduct of the election, submitted by the election commissioner or county clerk. The written plan shall include provisions for the notice of election to be published and for the application for ballots for early voting notwithstanding other statutory provisions regarding the content and publication of a notice of election or the application for ballots for early voting.
