District 113A no longer required to stay open late on Christmas, New Year’s eves to collect nominating petitions or objections
School District 113A will not be open this year on Christmas Eve to collect nominating petitions for candidates seeking to run for the Board of Education in the April 9, 2013 election.
The requirement was changed Monday when Gov. Pat Quinn signed into law Public Act 97-1134, which relieves school and college board secretaries, municipal and other local government clerks of staying open until 5 p.m. on Christmas Eve to accept nominations.
Offices are now required to be open until 5 p.m. on Dec. 26, regardless of whether the offices stay open or closed on Christmas Eve.
Due to the closure on Christmas Eve, objectors now have five business days from Dec. 26 to file objections to nominating papers.
District 113A office will also be closed on New Year’s Eve this year, pushing the last day for filing objections to Jan. 4. The office will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
