On August 15, the Illinois Hearing Officer who conducted the review of the challenge to the Libertarian Party statewide slate recommended that the slate be placed on the ballot. However, the final decision will be made by the State Board of Elections.
The only basis the challengers had for arguing that the slate should not be on the ballot was that the challengers argued that certain petitioners’ entire work product should be excluded. Generally, the basis for eliminating the entire work product of particular petitioners related to questions about where the petitioner lives. Thanks to Bill Redpath for this news.
