Running for Local Office? 2019 Candidate Deadline is Approaching
2019 seems like a long way off, but campaign season for municipal/local elections in Illinois is approaching fast.
If you are a Green Party member who would like the party's support as a local candidate, please be sure to submit the Candidate Questionnaire to the party secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than July 22nd! Once the questionnaire has been received, your local chapter (or the ILGP Executive Committee, where there is no local chapter) will schedule an interview.
Ballot access petitioning for 2019 elections runs from August 28 - November 26, so campaigns will need to be up and running by the end of August. Start planning now, if you haven't already!
Local elections often affect residents' daily lives more than state or national election, but often go uncontested or in some places entirely vacant. Don't let that happen in your town -- run Green in 2019!
