Incumbents, challengers line up Monday at Elmhurst City Hall to get on ballot
Incumbents and challengers lined up at the Elmhurst City Clerk's desk Monday morning to file nominating petitions to run for office in the spring municipal election.
One aldermanic seat from each of the seven wards is up for election, along with the positions of mayor, treasurer and city clerk.
The filing period ends Dec. 26.
So far, three alderman have announced their intentions to run for mayor— Diane Gutenkauf, Steve Morley and Mark Mulliner. No other public announcements for the mayor’s office have yet been made.
Candidates names will appear on the ballot in the order they filed. If two or more candidates filed for an office at the opening of the filing period Monday morning, a random lottery will decide which name appears above the other.
Gutenkauf and Morley filed Monday at the same time, so a random lottery will determine their name’s order on the ballot. Mulliner’s name and anyone else's who files for that race between now and Dec. 26 will follow on the ballot.
No other candidates for mayor were present Monday morning, but as with all other offices up for election this year, prospective candidates can still collect signatures and file until Dec. 26.
