TO: All Candidates Filing On Monday, November 23, 2015 at 8:00 a.m.
On the first day of filing, anyone who is in line as of 8:00 a.m., as well as those petitions received in the first mail delivery, will be deemed filed 8:00 a.m., and will be eligible for the lottery for ballot position.
If a filer is in line as of 8:00 a.m. on the first day of filing, but the petition is not ready to be filed as of the time of processing the last filer in line at 8:00 a.m., then the petition will be deemed filed at the actual time of its filing and not as of 8:00 a.m. That candidate will not be eligible for the ballot position lottery.
A simultaneous lottery will also be held when two or more petitions are file for the same office and party within the last hour of the filing deadline on November 30, 2015.
The simultaneous filing lottery will be held on December 2, 2015 at 9:00 a.m. in the County Clerk’s Office of the Historic Court House, 112 W. Madison Street, Pontiac, Illinois.
