Crossing Your T’s and Dotting Your I’s: Turning In Nominating Petitions

I’m sure many candidates have been burned by inane election petition rules when it comes to turning all those signatures in to your local election official. Maybe you didn’t bind your petitions correctly? Maybe you didn’t number your petitions sheets correctly?

Don’t get burned! Know the rules thoroughly and consult with your local election official or someone who has turned in petitions before about how to go about it correctly.

Illinois Green Party Chair, Phil Huckelberry, gives a glimpse of what sort of rules a candidate in Illinois must abide by when turning in petitions. Thanks to Green Party Cook County Board President candidate Tom Tresser for the video.
