There were basically five challenges to petitions to Libertarian candidates Kelley Liebmann’s candidacy for Coroner and Jim Young’s for Auditor:
1 – They didn’t have enough signatures.
2 – People who signed Republican and Democratic Primary Election Petitions were ineligible to sign a third party’s petition.
3 – Voters in the Republican or Democratic Party primaries were ineligible signers.
4 – Having voted in the Republican Primary Election, neither Liebmann nor Young were eligible to run as Libertarians.
5- In Liebmann’s case, signing a Republican petition invalidated her ability to run as a Libertarian.
Monday, the McHenry County Election Board decided that the number of signatures set by a Federal Judge in a suit brought by Libertarians were enough.
On Monday, August 10th, the other questions were be addressed.
The paid claim 628 valid signatures with 589 being required.
