Recent Election Code Amendments.

 September 13, 2010

By: Alan M. Mullins

This year, as in past years, Scariano, Himes and Petrarca is publishing an Election Manual for use by school districts in conjunction with the April 5, 2011 election.  The Election Manual is a “how to” guide with practical recommendations regarding compliance with the Election Law.  The Manual describes the entire election process from candidate nomination to the certification of candidates and will be mailed to clients by early October.

In the meantime, you should be aware that the first day for circulating nomination petition sheets is September 21, 2010.  You are not required to provide petition sheets to candidates, but may do so.  The petition sheets have not been changed since the last election.  If you need a copy of the petition sheet and/or the statement of candidacy, please contact Alan M. Mullins at 312-565-3100, Ext. 236 or amullins@edlawyer.com.
