You may have heard the horror stories of candidates who spend months gathering petition signatures only to find themselves knocked off the ballot for a technicality.
Illinois election law is intentionally arcane and confusing, ensuring that those who wrote the rules have a distinct advantage in elections by being able to keep their potential opponents off the ballot.
Why fall prey to this? Do you really want to spend countless hours in the cold getting signatures on petitions that ultimately get rejected? Is it worth risking putting in all this time and money, disrupting your career and family, laying your name on the line only to find out in December that you’re no longer a candidate?
