VILLAGE OF MACHESNEY PARK
Office of Village Clerk
For Immediate Release
The time is approaching for the circulation of petitions for the 2019 Consolidated Elections. Since the voters in the Village of Machesney Park voted several years ago for candidates to run as non-partisan candidates, Village residents running for office must file as if there would be a primary election involving more than five candidates for any given office. That Consolidated Primary will be held on February 26, 2019. If there are not five or more candidates running for any given office, there will not be a primary and the names of the candidates will be placed on the ballot for the Consolidated Election to be held on April 2, 2019.
Petitions cannot be circulated prior to Tuesday, August 28, 2018. Candidates in Machesney Park will be required to file their nominating petitions in the Machesney Park Village Clerk’s Office, 300 Roosevelt Road, during business hours 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. from Monday, November 19, 2018, through Monday, November 26, 2018.
