At least two prominent Republicans had their Precinct Committeeperson petitions rejected by the County Clerk’s office.
CORRECTION: The Clerk’s Office tells me that the petitions were not rejected, but that discrepancies pointed out led to the petitiopns not being filed.
With all the consolidation and splitting of precincts, a couple veteran members of the Republican Central Committee passed petitions with the wrong numbers on them.
If they (or others who would like to be part of the official power structure of McHenry County) want to be on the Central Committee, they will have to run write-in campaigns.
First, such folks will have to file a Declaration of Candidacy by April 28th.
Then, they will hace to convince seven people to write their names in.
