The State Board of Elections is expected to vote today on several challenges to nominating petitions for the March primary.
In one case, a hearing officer has recommended that a challenger to Governor Pat Quinn remain on the Democratic primary ballot. But Tio Hardiman’s running mate could be removed because she listed the wrong address on her petitions.
In a separate case, a preliminary review recommends allowing Sangamon County Associate Judge John “Mo” Madonia to stay on the Republican ballot for a vacant local judgeship.
Madonia’s opponent, Kent Gray, challenged his petitions on multiple grounds, most of which were rejected by the hearing officer.
