Monday morning marks the official beginning of the 2024 election cycle in Illinois, opening up the week-long period when candidates for local, state, congressional and judicial races are required to turn in the signatures they’ve spent the last two months collecting to get on the ballot.

The first day of petition filing has traditionally taken on a party atmosphere, as candidates and staff line up outside the Illinois State Board of Elections office in Springfield, where the line often reaches past the Chuck E. Cheese storefront, roughly 100 yards down from the board’s entrance in the capital city strip mall.

Those who get in line before 8 a.m. are entered into a lottery drawing to be placed atop the ballot for their respective position. The lottery drawing is scheduled for Dec. 13.

Though many candidates line up before filing opens, elections board spokesperson Matt Dietrich said he hasn’t seen any studies that prove being first on a primary ballot actually provides any advantage.

“Primary voters tend to be the most informed voters,” he said. “So these are the voters are most likely to know which candidates are on their primary ballot and they’re the voters who are most likely to have already made up their minds before they go into the polling place.”

Candidates who get in line before 8 a.m. will be entered into a lottery to receive the top spot on the ballot. The drawing is planned for Dec. 13.

The 2024 primary is on Tuesday, March 19.

* Wishful thinking…


* In the Madigan era, staff members were “encouraged” to camp out days in advance to show how tough they were. That’s no longer the case…


* From a buddy…

Do you have any filing day memories to share?

    “Danny Davis campaign set out some lawn chairs to declare “dibs” at the front of the line”

    Dude’s been in office since 1996 - you would assume he has the chops to find/pay a staffer to man the line.

    Lots and lots of people filed for judge races in DuPage County. So far every single person that filed is a Democrat. No wonder Pate died. I have never seen such a dramatic change.

    How many signatures do state reps and state senators need again? I promise I googled around on this but couldn’t find anything - you’d think the BoE website would have it in an easy to find spot… but, well, yknow.
