Illinois 2010 Elections: 2010 Illinois Candidate Petition Filings Jump 17.3% over 2006


(Chicago, IL) — November 3, 2009. From the Department of Minor Statistics, the number of 2010 candidates who filed primary nominating petitions with the Illinois State Board of Elections jumped 17.3% over 2006.

In 2006, 710 candidates filed, and 859 filed this year.

Well, there is a recession under way. People need jobs. Heck, in what other industry can you look for work and claim you have no experience and still stand a reasonable chance of getting hired? None. Just government.

It’s qualification proof.
