Dear School Official:
The locations, dates and times for school board candidate filing have been finalized. Our downtown office, as well as the election warehouse on the western Chicago border with Cicero, will be open for candidate filing the entirety of the Dec. 15-22 filing period. For the convenience of candidates, we will also offer suburban filing locations on the first day of filing, Dec. 15, when most candidates historically have filed.
Monday, Dec. 15: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tuesday, Dec. 16 - Friday, Dec. 19: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Saturday, Dec. 20: 9 a.m. to Noon
Monday, Dec. 22: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
All candidates who are in line by 8 a.m. on December 15th will have their papers stamped with that time. If more than one candidate seeking the same office files at 8 a.m., a lottery will be conducted to determine whose name will appear first on the ballot. Candidates for the same office who file between 4 and 5 p.m. on Dec. 22, the last day of filing, will also be included in a ballot lottery for the last spot on the ballot. Anyone who files between 8:01 a.m. on Dec. 15 and 3:59 p.m. on Dec. 22 will be on the ballot in the order they turned in their nomination paperwork.
This information will be posted online on the "Info for School Board Candidates" page: cookcountyclerk.com/schoolcandidates. We would also appreciate it if you could post the information at your school district, on your website, and distribute to any interested candidates. At that same webpage, candidates will find packet information, signature requirements (at least 50 signatures), and a general fact sheet.
Please do not hesitate to call 312-603-0906 with any questions.
