2017 ELECTION -- DETAILED INFORMATION
FAQ:  When are the filing dates? Where do candidates file?
Answer: 
Only School Board candidates and multi-township assessors file with our office directly, and that begins Monday, December 12, 8:00 am. Last day to file is Monday, December 19, 8:00 am and by 5:00 pm. All other candidates for local races file with their local election official. (Example:  The Normal Town Clerk will certify their candidates to us, be they Democratic, Republican or Independent.)
 
Each local official certifies their candidates to us. The deadline to certify is January 26, 4:30 pm. Some local elections do not have Republican or Democratic candidates. Check with your local election official; town clerk, township clerk, etc.


A write-in candidate must file a notarized "Declaration of Intent to be a Write-In Candidate" (SBE Form P-1F) with the County Clerk's office by February 2, 2017.

The elections our office, the County Clerk, handle (not City of Bloomington) have not triggered a February Primary. Thus, our elections throughout McLean County will be the Consolidated Election, Tuesday, April 4.
