Three Challenges to Inclusion of Barack Obama on Illinois Ballot

Barack Obama will not automatically be on the Illinois primary ballot.

After all the fuss she made about Illinois candidates not being forced to prove their U.S. citizenship before being allowed on the ballot, you just knew that Barrington Hills’ Sharon Meroni would file an objection to President Barack Obama’s candidacy.

When she did so for Independent McHenry County Circuit Court candidate Sally Wiggins, Meroni withdrew her objection when Wiggins produced her Harvard Hospital birth certificate.

Meroni has been joined in her objection by Chris Cleveland and Stephen Boulton, both of Chicago.

There were two other objections filed earlier:

  • Benjamin Freeman of Decatur
  • Michael Jackson of Morton

    DUH! Every jurisdiction does. There is no way county clerks can instantly remove people from the rolls when they die or move.

    RWNJs have no critical thinking skills.

    Also, yes, Obama will be on the ballot.
