2013 IL App (4th) 130127
Decision Date: 
March 15, 2013
District: 
4th Dist
Division/County: 
Champaign Co.
Justice: 
STEIGMANN
Holding: 
Reversed.
Defendant filed objection to nominating petition, challenging candidate's placement on ballot for consolidated general election for township assessor. Section 10-4 of Election Code does not prohibit any person from circulating petitions for a political party in a consolidated primary and later circulating a petition for independent candidate in a consolidated general election. Election Code makes no specific distinction between primary and general elections in odd-numbered years. (KNECHT, concurring; POPE, specially concurring.)
