Illinois Statewide Green Candidates file Petitions to Get Themselves on Green Party Primary Ballot

Published on October 30, 2009, by in General.

On October 30, the Illinois Green Party members who are running for statewide office in 2010 filed petitions to get themselves on their own party’s primary ballot. In most states, when a candidate files to get on his or her own party’s primary ballot, that is scarcely news. But in Illinois, election laws make it difficult for candidates to get on primary ballots. The statewide candidates each needed 5,000 valid signatures. See this story. The deadline isn’t until November 2, and there will be more news after that day on how many Greens filed to get on their own party’s primary ballot for Congress, state legislature, and county office.

    Separate is NOT equal.

    Brown v. Bd of Ed 1954

    Armies of brain dead lawyers and judges on such FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLE regarding ballot access.

    Every election is NEW and has ZERO to do with any prior election.

  2. What is the requirement for county offices?

  3. They know exactly what they are doing. Grabbing more power.

    Just makes it all the more important that citizens get off the couch and into the Green Party, and on the ballot as candidates.

    Thanks for story.

    The 2010 petition requirement to get on a partisan primary ballot for county office is one-half of 1% of that party’s 2008 general election vote in that county.
