Illinois State Board of Elections Hears Petition Challenges in Special Congressional Election on March 7

Published on February 27, 2013, by in General.

The Illinois State Board of Elections will hear the petition challenges on March 7, concerning the special U.S. House election, 2nd district. The outcome will determine whether LeAlan Jones, Elizabeth Pahlke, and Curtis Bey, are on the April 2013 ballot. Jones is the Green Party nominee and the other two candidates are independent candidates. Their petitions have been challenged, but there are substantial problems with the challenge. There is some evidence that the challenger did not see the petitions before she challenged. Also it is possible she doesn’t live in the 2nd district, and if she doesn’t, her challenges are not valid.

    Good. Rich Whitney, if he’s still representing them, will be very sure to point out those facts if they are confirmed as so. All that’s needed is for the whole challenge process to be done in a fair manner, and they’ll stay on the ballot. Now if the major news media could just let the voters up in IL 2 know that there IS a decent alternative to the Democrats (I’m a Green, so of course I’m supporting LeAlan Jones)…

    Disgrace, No R’s or D’s were challenged. Just the third party candidate and Indy’s. I hope LeAlan Jones comes close to the Hack D’s(maybe wishful thinking). Above the R’s in General Election would be great.
