The Illinois State Board of Elections will hear the petition challenges on March 7, concerning the special U.S. House election, 2nd district. The outcome will determine whether LeAlan Jones, Elizabeth Pahlke, and Curtis Bey, are on the April 2013 ballot. Jones is the Green Party nominee and the other two candidates are independent candidates. Their petitions have been challenged, but there are substantial problems with the challenge. There is some evidence that the challenger did not see the petitions before she challenged. Also it is possible she doesn’t live in the 2nd district, and if she doesn’t, her challenges are not valid.
