Illinois Libertarians Likely to Survive Challenge to Statewide Petition

For the last four days, the Illinois State Board of Elections has been adjudicating the challenge for the statewide Libertarian Party petition, and also the statewide Constitution Party petition. The state requires 25,000 signatures. Libertarians turned in more than 43,000, and with the process two-thirds done, 44% of the challenged 23,000 signatures have been ruled valid. At that rate, the outcome will provide a comfortable margin.

The Constitution Party slate, which turned in approximately 30,600, is less likely to qualify. So far, approximately 50% of its challenged signatures are being upheld, but the number of signatures that were challenged is so large that it will probably be below the requirement.

The challenge process hasn’t started yet for the Green Party statewide slate.

    Do you happen to know how many signatures the Green Party submitted?

    About 30,000 signatures, give or take a few hundred.
