Filing for the General Primary Election on March 15, 2016, will begin at 8 a.m. Monday and will run through 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 30, at the Vermilion County Clerk’s office at the Courthouse Annex, 6 N. Vermilion St.
Vermilion County Clerk Cathy Jenkins and her office reminds candidates to have all paperwork notarized prior to filing. If a candidate’s paperwork is not notarized at the time of filing, the candidate will be asked to step out of line to do so, and he or she will forfeit their desired time of filing.
Jenkins’ office has notaries available from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and they can notarize candidates’ paperwork free of charge.
The county clerk’s office will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 26, and Friday, Nov. 27, for Thanksgiving.
It will accept filings for offices including auditor, circuit clerk, recorder, state’s attorney, coroner, county board members and precinct committeemen.
Questions can be directed to Lindsay Light, supervisor of elections, at (217) 554-1911 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
