Notes for Consolidated Elections (Local, odd years)
Board of Education elections are very tough elections, with very low turn out, even though schools are the largest portion of your property tax bill and the Board makes decisions directly affecting students. Whether you have children currently in the schools or not, these elections MATTER to your household financially and otherwise - our schools are creating the next generation of leaders. – D211 Parents for Privacy

It seems that election season never ends. Many of us are helping our favorite candidate’s campaign for the November 6th 2018 general election. But, this fall it is time to find candidates for all the local elected officials.
For offices that have a primary (some cities: clerk treasurer alderman or trustee):

Citizen Participation Institute
The Citizen Participation Institue has created a set of on-line tools and guidebooks to assist citizens who are contemplating a run for local office. The web page is: http://www.citizenparticipation.org/ Take a look now. It is a combination of civics tutorial and detailed how-to information.
Once, petition signatures can be collected, a tool that accepts your input (name, address, office sought, etc) will become available. It will create custom forms for you to print.
