State extends April filing period
The candidate filing period for the April local election has been extended.
Gov. Pat Quinn this month signed into law a bill that extends the amount of time candidates have to file their nominating papers with local offices. The new deadline for applications is 5 p.m. Dec. 26 instead of 5 p.m. Dec. 24.
An early spring Election Day, combined with legal requirements for candidates wanting their name on the ballot, would have meant government offices had to stay open Dec. 24, forcing overtime pay.
