Seventh Circuit Upholds Requirement that Candidates for Chicago Citywide Office Submit 12,500 Signatures

On April 25, the Seventh Circuit upheld Chicago’s ballot access, that candidates for citywide office need 12,500 signatures. Other restrictions are that the signatures must be gathered within 90 days and that no one can sign for more than one candidate for a particular office.

Chicago holds non-partisan elections for its own offices. Here is the 15-page decision in Stone v Board of Election Commissioners, 13-2733.
